Big congratulations are in order for Geography PhD alum, Keith Brower Brown!
This month, the journal Environmental Politics published "Working sunset to sunrise: union strategies in three California climate transitions" by Dr. Keith Brower Brown (PhD, Berkeley Geography, 2023) with geographer Dr. Sara Holiday Nelson (University of British Columbia Centre for Climate Justice). The article, which draws on Keith's dissertation with solar construction workers and Latino political movements, is available open access here.
In addition, Labor Notes, a longstanding research, education and media project, hired Keith in April 2023 as its inaugural Labor-Climate Organizer. In the new role, Keith has led trainings on workplace action on climate crisis and reported widely, including on auto workers organizing the transition to electric vehicles. Keeping connected to academic research, the UC Berkeley Labor Center has brought Keith on as an affiliate researcher for the year.
