About the Partnership

Intersectional Environmentalist (IE) partnered with Clockshop to offer a Listening by Moonrise x Earth Sessions program, co-produced by The Eyes & Ears Agency. This event was hosted at LA State Historic Park on February 5 2023, featuring readings and a musical performance to honor Black History Month.

The event saw IE’s founder Leah Thomas reading from her book The Intersectional Environmentalist, Mandy Harris Williams performing a written piece, and musician Tonina playing her upright bass performing songs in English, Spanish and Sicilian. Attendees were also nourished by Hugh’s Hot Bowls and copies of IE’s publication The IE Agenda.

@earthsessions.ieThank you to everyone who joined us for our first ‘Listening by Moonrise’ of 2023, put on by Clockshop in collaboration with Earth Sessions @earthsess by @intersectionalenvironmentalist at @lastatehistoricpark 🌙🎶 Leah Thomas read from her book, ‘The Intersectional Environmentalist.’ Mandy Harris Williams performed a written piece that examined the costs of balancing self care, creative practice, and joy. Tonina played her guitar and her bass, Chauncey. Hugh’s Hot Bowls and tacos kept us full and warm! We had an amazing turnout and hope you will join us for our next ‘Listening by Moonrise’ this later this summer. @iamtonina @greengirlleah @idealblackfemale @hughshotbowls 📸 @ginaclyne Reel by @emyue2 #ClockshopLA #IntersectionalEnvironmentalist #IE #LeahThomas #MandyHarrisWilliams #Tonina #HughsHotBowls #VeganFood #ListeningByMoonrise #NonProfit #ArtsOrganization #LAStateHistoricPark
