July Member Spotlight: Kate Sundberg, Summer Intern

Kate interned in our Hood River office supporting community organizing and events.

During the summer of 2017, Kate Sundberg served as an intern in our Hood River office. She supported efforts in our fighting fossil fuel campaigns with community organizing and event support. She singled-handed recruited community partners and spearheaded promotions for our third-annual “Love Your Columbia Day” of service and volunteering, where 500 volunteers at 15 different sites along the Columbia River collected 16,000 pounds of trash. Additional skills she utilized during the summer included social media, brainstorming and drafting campaign programs for Columbia Riverkeeper members, staffing community volunteer events and rallies, and phone banking. Originally from Sarasota, FL, Kate attends Wesleyan University in Connecticut where she is studying Chemistry and Environmental Studies. Kate's easy-going, can-do attitude was a great addition to our team. Thanks for all your work, Kate!
