San Francisco Baykeeper w/ Sejal Choksi-Chugh

Episode Summary

Sejal Choksi-Chugh is a fierce defender of the environment. From a young age she wondered why the water was murky, why the air was polluted, and why no one seemed to be doing anything to fix it. After receiving her law degree with a certificate in environmental law in 2002 from UC Berkeley, Sejal’s been taking charge at San Francisco Baykeeper, a non-profit whose mission is to protect our Bay. Using law, science and advocacy as their tools, SF Baykeeper seeks out polluting businesses and holds them accountable by any means necessary. Sejal has been Executive Director since 2015. Sejal’s environmental advocacy work extends even beyond our bay. She sits on the governing council of the global Waterkeeper Alliance and co-founded the Bay Area chapter of Environmental Professionals of Color. We were thrilled to interview her this March on the Baykeeper boat. Enjoy! For more information about Sejal, please visit: Meet Sejal Choksi-Chugh!
