Gabriela Garcia, Communications and Operations Assistant
Gabriela works as a communication and operations assistant. She is an active member of the Latin community in the Columbia Gorge and has advocated for undocumented youth and families for many years. She has worked with other nonprofits around the state of Oregon as a community organizer as well. Gaby has volunteered with Comunidades since its inception and is a key volunteer, alongside Ubaldo and other members in both Oregon and Washington. Comunidades is a group of Latin organizers amplifying voices for environmental and social justice in our communities. In her spare time she enjoys spending time at the river with her family, hiking in the Gorge, and snowboarding on the slopes during the winter.
Riverkeeper’s team includes scientists, environmental lawyers, and community organizers. We work to organize and empower local communities, enforce environmental laws, and build strategic coalitions. Our mission is to protect and restore the Columbia River and all life connected to it.
