Isaias Hernandez

Gen Z Environmental Justice Educator & Founder of QueerBrownVegan

Biography

Isaias Hernandez was born in Los Angeles, California, also known as Tongva Land. He grew up in Section 8 housing, was a recipient of food stamps, and lived in a community that faced environmental injustice. These firsthand experiences are where he’d eventually find his passion for the environment, social justice, and equity. As he witnessed the ways pollution affected his body and community, he turned his anger and sadness into a solution: creating environmental education that would prioritize accessibility and intersectionality. Isaias had the opportunity to earn his B.S. in Environmental Science at the University of California, Berkeley, and began gaining experience in diversity inclusion work in environmental spaces, academic research, and creative work.

Now, he seeks to help everyone educate themselves on the intersectional nature of the climate crisis. He believes a diversity of worldviews, backgrounds, and experiences are essential to achieve success in the environmental movement. The climate crisis is an educational crisis and forms of education that can be sustained outside of our institutions will help to address it. Isaias wants to help create a world where low-income students no longer struggle to learn about environmentalism and this desire led him to create his platform, QueerBrownVegan. Since then, he’s gotten to see firsthand how independent communicators can connect the corporate and nonprofit sectors, change minds, and inspire all generations.

Isaias is currently living in Los Angeles, working as a full-time content creator for QueerBrownVegan, a public speaker, and a consultant. In his free time, he enjoys reading, cooking, foraging, and connecting to ecological wealth. Read Less ^
