Xiuhtezcatl Martinez had a lot planned for 2020, including a nationwide tour for his new “Moments” album, and continuing his environmental justice work. Like most of us, he hadn’t planned on a global pandemic bringing everything to a halt. In the final episode of our ‘20 in 2020’ series, we hear from the Indigenous organizer on how this summer’s anti-racism protests and the relationships he made during isolation impacted his year.

In this episode:

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, musician and climate activist.
