Lola Jusidman Shoshana is a climate justice and decarbonization activist, student power organizer, and Masters student of climate politics at NYU’s Wilf Family Department of Politics. She has organized for 5 years with NYU Divest for Climate Justice, a campaign which has awakened a wave of student escalation against the university’s billionaire Trustees. In 2017, Lola founded Decarbonize NYU, a horizontal campaign organizing the NYU community to fight for a 100% renewable university, an end to NYU’s reliance on fracked gas, emissions transparency, and accountability to local Environmental Justice organizations. Lola is an empiricist who believes that the social sciences and humanities can and must work in strategic service of social movements–representation and documentation are not enough. In her studies, she relies on the 20th century power debate, data, comparativism, and political economy to attempt an understanding of the climate movement in the aggregate. She hopes to help identify realistic pathways to just climate mitigation. She stands in solidarity and admiration of those struggling for collective liberation and human/nonhuman dignity.
