Iconic singer-songwriter and environmental activist Carole King talks music, activism, and the power of a meaningful gesture. King shares how her more than 50 years of activism has helped her see how interconnected issues like the environment, immigration, education and hunger truly are. “We are all connected as humans, whatever our party is, and we are all connected on the issues because the issues are interconnected,” King believes. “Hate is a feeling and it’s genuine and people feel it, but the way it has been misused and abused by so many people in politics is ugly… I want to encourage love and I want to encourage civil discourse.” This commitment is evidenced in King's decades-long fight to protect national forests in and around her adopted state of Idaho as an advocate for the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act. “I take so much joy from the proximity to nature. It is intrinsically heartwarming. It nourishes us,” she says.
