As a young Aboriginal woman, Angel Owen cares about environmental destruction on more than just a physical level. When her family went through huge upheaval during Australia’s 2013 floods, she was moved to join the movement of Aboriginal, Torres Strait and Pacific Islanders in opposing offshore coal projects through the Break Free movement. Attending the National Indigenous Youth Leadership Academy, Angel continued to hone her skills as an organizer, while dreaming of pursuing climate justice one day through law school.
