Young Evangelicals For Climate Action / Sojourners

Melody Zhang serves as the Climate Justice Campaign Coordinator at Sojourners and Chair of Young Evangelicals for Climate Action. In these roles, she lifts up the stories of people who bear the brunt of climate change (and who contribute the least to it) and cultivates leadership on earthkeeping within the Church. Melody was born in Anhui, China and was raised in metro-Detroit, where she grew up in Asian American community and fellowship. She believes deeply that although the Church is historically late to this conversation, it can and must play a critical role as the people of God through embodied practice of environmental justice.
