Pronouns: she/hers or they/them
Nina first came into organizing work after high school, working with Jews for Racial & Economic Justice in New York. She further sharpened these skills during the six years she spent living in Rhode Island, where she organized with the local Sunrise Movement hub to support the People’s Port Authority (formerly known as “No LNG in PVD”) that is fighting fossil fuel expansion in Providence and demanding statewide climate justice legislation.
“There’s horrendous environmental pollution concentrated in Providence’s port area – home to predominantly Black and Latine communities and other communities of color in the city. But instead of cleaning up their mess, fossil fuel corporations are trying to build even more oil and gas facilities that will make the pollution worse,” she explains. “And the common thread through all of this has been the corporate abuse of BIPOC communities, enabled by the local and state governments.”
At Corporate Accountability, Nina provides scheduling and administrative support to the Executive Director. She is also involved in a number of projects across the organization, such as coordinating logistics with Corporate Accountability’s Board of Directors. She looks forward to combining her love of organizing with her love of calendars, spreadsheets, and poring over details to continue challenging racial capitalism and corporate power.
Nina is currently based in the greater Boston area with her 3-year-old dog Bao Bao. When she is not organizing for climate and food justice, Nina can be found reading, baking (and eating!) sweets, lifting heavy stuff at the gym for fun, dabbling in ceramics, or trying to keep her houseplants alive. She graduated from Brown University with a degree in Environmental Studies.
