Rachel Lea Scott (she/her) is a training and events associate. She began her career in social services, working in different roles with individuals facing challenges in their lives. After several years of working in this field, Rachel made the move to public policy advocacy to have an impact on some of the systemic barriers that she saw often affect people trying to move forward with their lives. She spent the last four years helping to lead a faith-based advocacy organization in Connecticut. There, she advocated for legislation and policies that would improve the lives of low-income and other marginalized people, participated in faith-based community organizing efforts, and educated various audiences about social justice issues. Through this work, Rachel’s passion for environmental and climate justice grew. Rachel holds master’s degrees in social work and theology and ministry, both from Boston College. Rachel enjoys spending time in nature; a love she hopes to instill in her young child. She is excited to engage faith leaders and faith communities across the country in climate and environmental justice work.
