Peter serves as the Energy & Climate Campaign Representative based in our Washington, D.C. office. Coming from an activist family in the Gulf Coast, Peter started his career after he co-founded a nonprofit to advocate for LGBTQ policies in Alabama. Serving as their organizing director, he helped build campaigns to fight for more inclusive policies, like city-wide nondiscrimination ordinances and marriage equality. He left Alabama for Texas where he joined the organizing team at FWD.us, an immigration nonprofit. There he worked with different stakeholders across the political spectrum to build support for comprehensive immigration reform.
Recently, Peter worked on electoral campaigns. In 2016 he worked in Maryland for different congressional and senatorial races, as well as the presidential race and in 2017 he campaigned for Tom Perriello in Virginia during the gubernatorial primaries. In his free time Peter can be seen at his local movie theater or around town with his fiancée, enjoying what D.C. life has to offer.
