Environmental Health & Justice Project Coordinator
"I believe we are connected to the struggles and wellbeing of others. That is why I am committed to strengthening the ties that people have to each other, and the decisions that are made in the community. With collective empowerment comes greater vitality for the whole."
Jennifer is passionate about actualizing vibrant and just communities. She was previously involved with various organizations working on issues of public health and environmental and social justice in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Prior to joining Liberty Hill, she coordinated the Air & Climate Justice Program at Physicians for Social Responsibility – Los Angeles, and largely focused on the health impacts experienced by residents living adjacent to oil extraction sites in a citywide campaign to end neighborhood drilling. Jennifer has also worked with the Center for Biological Diversity on large-scale community organizing efforts around the first People's Climate March in New York City, as well as volunteered with community-based organizations like People Organized to Win Employment Rights (P.O.W.E.R.) in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco. She is now happy to be providing key support for the emPOWER campaign, as she works alongside community partners to ensure that clean energy, along with the savings and pollution relief that follow, reach the most burdened households in Los Angeles. Jennifer holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies with an emphasis on sustainability and social justice from San Francisco State University.
