Raquel (she/her) joined Earthworks in 2020 as Policy Associate and is now Earthworks’ first Circular Economy Policy Advocate. She encourages decision-makers to promote recycling, reuse, substitution, and demand reduction policies over more extraction. Her work is driven by the intersections between between colonization, extraction, xenophobia, gender-based violence, white supremacy, and the climate crisis. She is the co-author of Just Minerals: Safeguarding protections for community rights, sacred places, and public lands from the unfounded push for mining expansion.
Raquel graduated from Saint Louis University with a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and Political Science and minors in Women’s & Gender Studies and Foreign Service.
