Fellow

Alexis Russell is a Summer Fellow working on Mighty Earth’s meat campaign, with a focus on Latin America. Prior to joining the team at Mighty, she was a leader in Sunrise Movement’s DC Hub, organizing to strengthen relationships between the climate justice and other social justice movements. In 2019, Alexis graduated with a dual master’s degree in Global Environmental Policy from American University and in Natural Resources & Sustainable Development from the University for Peace in Costa Rica.

Alexis became passionate about human rights while studying International Relations at Eckerd College, in St. Petersburg, FL. After graduating, she taught English in Bucaramanga, Colombia, where she fell in love with exploring new places and learning from other cultures. She’s in her element wherever there’s good food and impassioned debate, and nothing lifts her spirits like a good sunset.
