Raphael Breit

Raphael joined Earthworks in 2019 as the Community Empowerment Project Coordinator. He was born in Massachusetts and spent his summers growing in the woods of Maine and the Adirondacks where he developed a great love of exercise and the outdoors.

After graduating from college, Raphael spent several years in the Boston area, working on local environmental campaigns. In 2012, he moved to Israel for a year to be a desert ecology research assistant at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, which uses regional environmental issues as a catalyst for peacebuilding and coexistence initiatives.

After completing the fellowship, he moved to Washington, D.C. He spent several years working with Native American/Alaska Native Communities on a variety of issues, including native education, health, tobacco rights, and poverty before going to graduate school.

He holds an MPP from George Washington University and a BA from Union College.
