Observer to the UNFCCC

University of Washington Delegation

In 2019, I was appointed to the University of Washington's Observer delegation to the UN. As such, I attended the UNFCCC COP25 meeting in Madrid, Spain in the fall of 2019 and continue to do work in this area. As part of this work I've written submissions to the Doha Work programs for the Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) program within the UNFCCC.

In the fall of 2020, I was selected to participate in the Climate Dialogues that were held in lieu of the COP 26 meeting (due to COVIC-19) as part of the RINGO sessions.

The amazing communications folks at the University of Washington's College of Education have helped me produce resources around climate justice in the form of podcasts or edutalks. Additionally, the folks at the College of the Environment who have involved me in their EarthLab talks.
