Jacob Belgrad, Environmental Justice Organizer

Jacob Belgrad (He/Him/His) is an Environmental Justice Organizer for the state of Colorado. He was born in the Chicago area but moved to Colorado for higher education and hasn’t thought about going back since. He attended Colorado College in Colorado Springs and graduated in 2021 with a B.A. in Environmental Studies where he focused heavily on the intersections of climate change and social justice issues.

Jacob always knew that he wanted to pursue a career in advocacy. He believes that climate change is disproportionately affecting our underserved communities and upon graduating he made it his goal to fight that. Passionate about open dialogue and finding practical solutions to the issues that face our communities, Jacob hopes to engage the community and empower voices for a grassroots resistance to the forces that are perpetuating climate change.
