Kaitlyn Elaine Wegener


Born in the Marshall Islands, Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner was raised in Hawaii, but always felt deeply connected to her ancestry, islands, and the community of her birth home. Protecting the islands from climate change and nuclear testing, she uses her writings, poetry, and performances to address ecological and social justice in the Marshall Islands, including issues arising from colonialism, racism, and migration. She founded Jo-Jikum, a non-profit led by Marshallese youth, and is Climate Envoy for the Marshall Islands Ministry of Environment.
