Emmaline Giles

Emmaline Giles

Environmental Justice Organizer

Emmaline is excited to join the MCU team as the new Environmental Justice Organizer. Emmaline is working on building a base of local congregation leaders to stimulate faith-based dialogue around the impacts of environmental racism throughout our communities. She is also working to support clergy leaders to unite our mutual power and spearhead a local environmental justice movement. The environmental justice movement, led by people of color, demands that environmental racism be dismantled, that all people have the opportunity to live a safe and healthy life, and the voices of the most oppressed be heard and equitably addressed by decision-makers.
