P Brown is a queer non-binary femme immigrant originally from Kingston, Jamaica, where they birthed 18 years of life in deep relationship with the Earth for survival, protection, and resilience. They are a creative writer, poet, and spoken word performer who comes alive as a fierce organizer, coach, and facilitator committed to powerful storytelling that centers QTPOC (Queer Trans People of Color) voices in the struggle to transform our societies towards collective freedom and liberation. Over the past 2 years, they’ve left academia to pursue full-time organizing as part of the global youth climate justice movement to shine light on the realities Black, Brown, and Indigenous Queer and Trans souls inherently hold wisdom to envision solutions and adaptations to climate crises. Their writing seeks to explore how the Earth itself reclaims queerness as core to its healing through its relationships with POC bodies. They’ve worked on the local, national, and international scale with organizations including the Better Future Project, SustainUS, Sunrise, and the Sierra Student Coalition. As such, they find joy, passion, and fulfillment in developing curriculum and trainings for climate and environmental justice youth programs to hold space for POC youth to explore their leadership potential, deepen their creative practice, and empower themselves to heal. Their work has been featured in numerous magazines and news-outlets, including Teen Vogue and Grist.org, Ottar Magazine (in Sweden), Nowthis, and Vice.
