Climate Justice Organizer

Emma joined Clean Water Action as an Intern in the fall of 2023 before transitioning to a full-time role as the Climate Justice Organizer in the Boston Office in the winter of 2024.

Emma graduated from Connecticut College in May of 2023 and earned a B.A. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Social Justice and Sustainability. Before moving to Boston, Emma was an intern with the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs while living in New London, CT and worked to ensure a just transition to a renewable energy economy. This work included drafting press releases and other campaign materials in support of SB 961: a Carbon Free and Healthy Schools Act and well as creating community guides that stress the importance of Community Benefits Agreements, Project Labor Agreements, and local advocacy.

Emma was born and raised in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and growing up in such a beautiful place inspired a lifelong appreciation for the natural beauty of our planet and an understanding of how different communities experience the reality of climate change. She is dedicated to advocating for the environmental justice communities most vulnerable to climate change.

Outside of work, Emma is an outdoor sports enthusiast who loves skiing, hiking, and camping as well as reading, traveling, and trying new foods. She currently lives in South Boston, MA.
