But I focus on:
I care about:
where my jacket's polyester originates
diversity in sports
underprivileged youth in sports
costs of higher education
bicycle & pedestrian infrastructure
"Brody not only seeks his own avalanche education; he also gives back by teaching others how to approach and stay alive in dangerous terrain. He donates time and energy for interviews in large-distribution educational films. He is a good icon for safety, his track recored is proof. Brody brings a good image to the avalanche community by being responsible in the mountains and helping his fellow skiers when they have questions. We love Brody Leven."

PARTNERS IN ACTIVISM
Once a year, I put on a suit and meet with elected officials in Washington DC to discuss the integrity of our natural environment.
I speak at press conferences, elementary schools, professional development workshops, media outlets, and government hearings about our environment.
I volunteer to help teach avalanche classes, give presentations on my experiences in avalanche terrain, and write op-eds about first-hand experiences with climate change.
At the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) in 2015, I represented the snowsports industry as eyes and ears to the most important climate negotiations of my generation.
I am not an expert on avalanches nor the environment. But I care about our health and safety. So I'm using my little platform, which I work to create, to try to make a small, positive impact on our planet and people.
"Brody truly understands the role of being a pro athlete and how to use his platform to create positive change by educating, inspiring and influencing others. Brody is always prepared; he shows up and embraces every opportunity that’s presented to him. He’s truly someone we all rely on, admire and respect."
