Satchi is a queer, gender bending first generation South Asian American environmental justice advocate. They hold their identity as an environmentalist as closely as they do their queerness and heritage. Satchi's study and practice of their identities has turned them into a life-long student of intersectional environmentalist lenses like environmental racism, ecofeminism, queer ecology, anti-speciesism, crip ecology, and more. As someone who works in educational, personal, and professional development spaces, they strive to equip others with these same perspectives and tools of analyses as well.
Satchi enjoys exploring art and creativity, specifically music and storytelling as a movement building tool. From concerts, potlucks, and weekend retreats, they curate spaces for people to bring their whole selves to environmental and social justice work. They are also using the power of narratives and storytelling to uplift the instrumental environmental work of BIPOC, LGBTQ+, femme, and people with disabilities.
Currently, Satchi works to lower barriers for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ students to pursue environmentalism and environmental justice academically and professionally. They strive to make space and platforms for frontline communities to advance critical climate solutions.
