Stateside: MI GOP party divide; making the fragrance industry more inclusive; redefining climate urgency from an Indigenous perspective
Today on Stateside, we take a look at two recent Michigan GOP events that cast light on a party divide as Republicans prepare for the 2022 election cycle. We also talk with Digital Scent Festival founder Yosh Han and Detroit indie perfumer and Scent Docent Terees Western about decolonizing the fragrance industry. And, Potawotami scholar, activist, and White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council member Kyle Whyte discusses why prioritizing relationships and justice matters in addressing climate change.
