When women join a male-dominated sport, it can be difficult to gain the respect of fans, officials, and fellow athletes. Those issues can be even more exacerbated when women challenge the sports world to consider new, more ethical ways of living.

But that didn’t stop Leilani Münter

Leilani is a Biology graduate from UC San Diego, a professional race car driver, and an environmental activist. 

She realized early in her career that her mission was to bridge the worlds between racing and environmental work

Despite early criticism, her race cars have carried messages about renewable energy, she has adopted an acre for every race she’s run since 2007, and she treated race fans to 30,000 Impossible Burgers at the Chicagoland Speedway. 

Today she joins Dotsie and Alexandra to chat about her advocacy for solar power, electric cars, plant-based diets, animal rights, and population control. 

You’ll hear her story of making the switch, how she brought renewable energy to the race track, and how she’s opening up the population dialogue in an upcoming film.

Watch out, because Leilani is as powerful in her arguments as she is on the track. Get ready to be convinced.
