August 29, 2023 (BOSTON, MA) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) has named Britteny Jenkins the organization’s next Vice President for Environmental Justice. Britteny will lead CLF’s transportation, justice, zero waste, and healthy neighborhoods efforts.

“I’m thrilled to be joining CLF at such a critical time in the environmental movement,” said Jenkins. “So many communities are saddled with unfair environmental burdens simply because they are low income or made up of people of color. It’s time to put an end to these injustices, and I’m ready to hit the ground running in making that goal a reality.”

“Climate justice is at the center of CLF’s work, and Britteny has the perfect combination of policy and political acumen to lead our work with partners for a clean energy transition that improves health and equity in the communities hardest hit by pollution and extreme weather,” said CLF President Bradley Campbell.  “We’re delighted to have her on our team.”

Britteny most recently worked as Policy Director for the Democratic Attorneys General Association and its affiliated 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) organizations.  Prior to that, Britteny worked in the U.S. House of Representatives, including holding the positions of Staff Director for the Subcommittee on Environment for the House Oversight Committee and Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. Britteny holds a J.D. from Washington and Lee University School of Law and a B.A. in Economics from East Carolina University.  

Britteny replaces CLF’s previous Vice President for Environmental Justice, Staci Rubin.
