As Washington State Governor and former presidential candidate Jay Inslee’s right-hand man, Jamal Raad traveled the country advocating for climate change justice; helped create Inslee’s 10-year action plan, which has shaped the narrative of climate policy in Washington, D.C.; and was behind a surprisingly successful presidential bid. Now, Raad is striking out on his own as the cofounder and campaign director of Evergreen Action, a nonprofit that hopes to influence and shape climate policy in the era of COVID-19. The group has created a strategy that goes beyond Inslee’s in scope, and many of the actions it recommends were adopted by Joe Biden for his own climate plan.
Before running communications for Inslee, Raad served as press secretary and new media director for Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley.
