Welcome aboard, Emma!

Please join us in welcoming our new summer organizing intern, Emma Washa! Emma is a student at the University of Pittsburgh studying Communications and Political Science. Along with gardening, cooking, and spending time with her friends and family, her passions lie in environmental justice and community outreach. Upon participating in a CCJ Frontline Community Tour in 2015, Emma became inspired to become more involved in environmental organizations at Pitt, and is now excited to continue her work in Western PA to advocate for community empowerment in the communities directly impacted by fossil fuel extraction. During her time with CCJ, Emma hopes to learn more about how she can act as a resource to communities who are resisting the fossil fuel industry.
