Costa, an organizer of Amazon Employees for Climate Justice, was fired after circulating a petition about health risks for Amazon warehouse workers during COVID-19. Not long after, Tim Bray resigned from his VP position in dismay at Amazon's firing leaving behind "the best job" he's ever had. The two share their experiences and answer your questions in our next Conversation.
Both were deeply involved in publicizing and advocating for Amazon to become more environmentally sustainable and climate-friendly. This is a big important discussion. 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET Participants have the opportunity to submit questions during the talk.
