Some of our awesome Youth Climate Action Council members spoke today on Boise State Public Radio. Way to go Jayden and Asha!
Idaho, you need to meet these environmental advocates. It’s their passion, not their politics. Asha Muhingi’s and Jayden Rehwalt’s pasts are dramatically different. Rehwalt was born and raised in Boise. Muhingi was a refugee from Congo, before coming to Boise at the age of 9. But their passion for change and their hopes for treating the planet with greater respect are one-and-the same.
