Lana Weidgenant is a climate justice activist and a voice for shifting to plant-rich food systems as a climate solution. She is a Brazilian immigrant to the United States who moved from her Florida home to the Washington, DC area to attend college full-time at the Johns Hopkins University.

In moving nearby to the centers of power in DC and the Hopkins institution, she saw the opportunity to stand up for the communities she comes from and the future of her generation in voicing for a more humane, sustainable future.
