Priya Judge, Power Past Fracked Gas Coalition Coordinator
Priya (she/her) gives thanks to her ancestors and relations above all else. As Coalition Coordinator for Power Past Fracked Gas, she facilitates strategic organizing against fossil fuel infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest. Born and raised on traditional Tualatin Kalapuya lands, Priya received her education in Southeast Michigan, where she built grassroots power for racial and decolonial justice. A heart steward indigenous to the high plateaus of Asia, Priya is the firm bearer of her matriarchal lineages across space. She most enjoys inhabiting non-linear time by hugging trees, surfing Goodreads, and inducing spontaneous combustion in her kitchen.
