South Florida Sun-Sentinel Profiles Marcela Mulholland’s Climate Activism

Austin Erblat of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel profiled Next100 policy entrepreneur Marcela Mulholland, who was raised in the Fort Lauderdale area.

“We live in a time of intersecting crises—from immigration to health care to economic inequality—there are so many issues that are really urgent that we need intersectional, bold, ambitious public policy solutions and I think a Green New Deal promises to address climate change while also helping to address some of those other issues as well.”
