What a difference 18 days can make—especially in 2020. When we shot this profile on Darling Clementine and Still We Rise founder Lindsay Meyer Harley just two and a half weeks ago, the Portland-based mother of two, her family, and our photographer were still able to romp around outdoors, soaking in nature and capturing the beautiful Northern Pacific landscape as a backdrop. Now, due to the devastating wildfires ravaging the West Coast, Portland residents are doing anything but breathing easy, with their city currently ranking as the worst—in the world—in air quality and pollution.
But even before this turn of events, climate change—as well as family separation, systemic racism, getting folks to VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!, and so many other vital issues—have been top of mind for Lindsay. In our feature, the passionate and socially engaged entrepreneur—who has currently raised over $617,000 in 3 years for 18 incredible charities—discusses everything from small apartment living and being an expat kid to humbling oneself around “doing the work,” messing up publicly, and moving forward.
