We are hiring for these positions in part because sadly, Indi Namkoong and Emily Krafft have decided to leave the Staff Collective. So on that note, we wanted to take this opportunity to extend our deepest appreciation to them both, and to wish them well on their next steps.
Emily was our Development Manager since April of 2022, but before being on staff she had been a 350PDX volunteer, including as a Fossil Fuel Resistance Team Co-Coordinator from 2017 to 2020, and as a City/County Watchdog Team member. She has given so much to the 350PDX community and the climate justice movement as a whole, and we will surely miss having her in the collective.
Indi was our Coalition Manager since 2020, and was instrumental in expanding our coalition work. Indi’s work included: representing 350PDX within frontline-led coalition spaces, bottom-lining rapid response communications for the Portland Clean Energy Fund Coalition, working with partners on the successful 2021 Oregon Clean Energy Opportunity campaign and the ongoing Portland City Charter Reform process, and more.
While we are sad to see Indi and Emily leave the staff team, we are excited to see all the places they end up next – and we are confident that wherever they are they will continue to bring passion, thoughtfulness, and dedication to their work.
