Sara T. Black
Sara Black is an ecology and anthropology major from Birmingham, Alabama, with a passion for community resilience, food and environmental justice, and local economies. She has held leadership roles on national, regional, and community scales with the Sierra Club, the Sierra Student Coalition, Southern Energy Network, the Greenhorns, and Real Food Challenge, and she has primarily worked to engage and empower youth to play a role in environmental victories. She plans to either pursue a Ph.D. or build a career in advocacy and grassroots organizing. In her spare time, she loves farming vegetables, building with scrap materials, and brewing kombucha.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
