Earth Watch: Panagioti Tsolkas from the Human Rights Defense Center

This week’s Earth Watch guest is Panagioti Tsolkas. Tsolkas works at Human Rights Defense Center in November 2014, coordinating community outreach efforts and volunteer involvement. He also directs HRDC’s Prison Ecology Project, which maps the connections between mass incarceration and environmental degradation.

Prior to working at HRDC, Panagioti was an editor for the Earth First! Journal. He also served as chairperson for the City of Lake Worth’s Community Relations Board (tasked primarily with oversight of police conduct), as co-chair of the Palm Beach Count Environmental Coalition and as an Executive Committee member of the Sierra Club’s Loxahatchee Group.

The weekly Earth Watch segment is featured on the Sojourner Truth radio show on KPFK radio out of Los Angeles, California.
