Anthony Karefa Rogers-Wright

A prototypical New Yorker, Anthony has over 12 years of experience as an environmental/urban planner, researcher, policy analyst, political strategist, consultant and organizer. His professional experience has covered a broad range including, but not limited to, corporate and non-profit environmental consulting firms, grassroots political campaigns, and healthcare advocacy and outreach. Most recently Anthony has focused on Climate Disruption (aka Climate Change) mitigation strategies at the local and regional levels. He is a staunch advocate and student of Environmental Justice (EJ) tactics and strategies, including tactics to bring environmental awareness and stewardship of low-wealth communities and communities of color to the "mainstream" environmental consciousness. His passion for EJ has taken him as far away as Israel, where he was afforded the opportunity to study EJ challenges and present them to the City Council of Jerusalem. When not immersed in work, Anthony can be found teaching or taking a Yoga class or on stage performing jazz/funk bass-guitar somewhere on the planet. While he has met many famous people, the first time he was star struck was upon meeting the great, late Douglas Adams.
