Director, Public Lands Campaign

Started on staff: 2001
B.A., Oberlin College

Ellen runs campaigns to protect America's beautiful places, from local beachfronts to remote mountain peaks. Prior to her current role, Ellen worked as the organizing director for Environment America’s Climate Defenders campaign. Ellen lives in Denver, where she likes to hike in Colorado's mountains.

Last week, Rep. Hoyer testified on his AMAZON21 legislation in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Hoyer’s AMAZON21 bill presents an opportunity to protect climate-critical forests, biodiversity and the health of local communities beyond the United States. As the second-highest emitter of carbon dioxide emissions in the world, it is our country’s responsibility to not only curb our own emissions and protect our own forests but to also leverage our wealth to fund carbon-mitigation programs in nations that may otherwise tolerate or encourage climate-critical forest loss to bolster their economies.
