Volunteer Spotlight: Runa Ray

This month’s volunteer spotlight features Runa Ray from Half Moon Bay, California, who is a member of our new California chapter. Runa says: “As a fashion environmentalist, I realized that there cannot be environmental justice without social justice. Given that war is one of the most expensive disasters to people and the planet, the only way forward is to have a world without war.” Read Runa’s story.
