ForestEthics, ForestEthics Advocacy, and ForestEthics Solutions operate as a highly effective international coalition of independent organizations. While we are separate entities we coordinate closely–working together to achieve specific shared goals and objectives in the US and Canada.

Claire Richards

Development Associate

Claire joined ForestEthics in August 2011, having spent three years in development at The Cathedral of Christ the Light, where she and her team managed the growth of a multi-million dollar campaign. Claire came to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008 from her hometown of London, England, via a year in Australia. Politics and social justice issues have been a passion for Claire since obtaining her B.A. at University of Manchester. She’s happy to have been able to volunteer since 2009 with Peace Action West, a non-profit working for smarter American approaches to global problems.

Having been raised with a love of the “great outdoors”, Claire travels extensively,  a result of which is a strong conviction in the necessity of preserving the world’s beautiful natural spaces and combating climate change.
