Victoria Higgins

Victoria is a Mighty Earth organizer in Chicago, IL working to protect forests and waters from destruction and pollution associated with the meat industry’s agricultural practices–specifically, by pressing McDonalds and Whole Foods to set environmental standards for the meat they buy from agribusiness giants, Tyson and Cargill. Victoria grew up in Hoboken, NJ and attended college in Princeton, NJ, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Neuroscience. She began her post-college career by pursuing veterinary medicine before choosing to focus on directly protecting the planet through organizing. She is an avid Ultimate frisbee player, cook, and (ruthlessly competitive) cards player. She is a member of the Green Corps class of 2019.
