The following are causes and organizations that I deeply care about:
- Empowering women & girls: One of the root causes of poverty is women and girls’ lack of control over their lives. But once empowered by education, economic opportunity or choice, a woman can be a catalyst for positive change in her community.
- Responding to emergencies: In times of conflict or disaster, we address immediate survival needs directly following an emergency — and help individuals, families and communities rebuild their lives in the weeks, months and years to come.
- PATH is breaking every barrier to unlock a healthier future for women, children, and communities in the world’s poorest countries.
- Sierra Club
- Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization — with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we’ve made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.
