Speaker Profile

Josh Yoder

visual strategy & production

Josh Yoder is an illustrator and visual strategist helping communities take control of their own media narratives and storytelling. He is currently helping to build out the Sunrise Movement's creative department. He grew up in central Pennsylvania, watching the Mennonite traditions of service and restorative justice wrestle with the wave of xenophobia and racism in post 9/11 America. With a background in design and technical production, his work centers on supporting communities fighting for the media stages movements are traditionally barred from. He’s worked with early FightFor15, 350.org, the People’s Climate March, and the March for Science–but is most lucky to have worked on local pipeline fights across the North East and most recently the campaign to stop Amazon’s headquarters in NYC.
