My work


These days I work for Friends of the Earth, a great, hard-hitting environmental campaign organization, where my job is to campaign to protect forests and forest people’s rights. But, over the years, my work has focused in these areas:

* Developing popular education materials (like the 2014 Community Action Guide to the Asian Development Bank, the booklet Mercury and Community Health in Northern California, or like the War Profiteers Card Deck)

* Popular educational training and workshop facilitation for community resilience

* Media outreach, strategic messaging and communications consulting (I’ve worked a lot with Design Action Collective to provide full-service messaging and design for newsletters and other organizational and movement vehicles, and maintain up-to-date media lists for press outreach.

* Reporting and documentation (as in this video)

* Editing, editorial consulting, copy writing, proofreading, and Spanish-English translation (Changing the Flow is an example of a booklet I edited, as is Free Land)

  • Center for Environmental Health/Generation Green
