Alejandro Murillo is originally from Caracas, Venezuela and grew up in Boulder. His appreciation for science and the natural world led him to graduate from the University of Colorado, Boulder, with a BA in Geology. His love of diverse communities and bridging them together is what propelled him into social justice work. Combining the two passions has brought him to climate justice work in the communities that he grew up with. Alejandro believes in finding the connection between all social issues and climate change as a way to address the root causes of climate chaos.
In the Environmental Center he helps coordinate the Climate Justice Team with their events that draw awareness to those voices who have been traditionally excluded, but are so vital in our collective work. Building relationships and creating inclusive environments is at the heart of the work for him, both in the E-center and in the community.
In his spare time he enjoys being outside, playing sports, in the mountains or hanging out with friends and family, in between naps, of course.
