Zhang serves as steering committee co-chair at Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, where she helped to organize conversations on earth stewardship. She also works as a climate justice campaign coordinator at Sojourners, a role she hopes to honor by lifting up the stories of people who bear the brunt of climate change (and who contribute the least to it) and cultivating leadership on earthkeeping within the church. Melody was born in Anhui, China, and was raised in Detroit, where she grew up in the Asian American community and fellowship. She holds a BA in Environmental Studies and Philosophy from the University of Michigan.
