Julia Gabbert, Associate Director of Major Gifts, Corporate Accountability

Michél Legendre, Associate Campaign Director, Corporate Accountability

Julia Gabbert is leading a team of organizers to help grow resources and people power toward creating the uncompromising change our world needs. She is particularly interested in transformational climate justice and passionate about organizing people to leverage their privilege and join the movement. She got her start in organizing through learning about consumerism in her university classes and went on to co-found the club Real Food Boston College to get more local, sustainable food on campus, and educate her classmates about the role of corporations in driving major societal problems.

Michél focuses on running the long-term corporate campaign to counter the tobacco industry and it’s role in the global tobacco epidemic. He helps direct the work to monitor, expose, and challenges the tobacco industry towards long-term and lasting impact. Between coordinating with allies around the globe, and organizing for strong public health policies at the WHO, Michél also supports applying the lessons learned from the tobacco industry to the climate crisis. Michél is a proud immigrant from Trinidad and Tobago and is deeply invested in supporting global climate activism that is anti-imperial, anti-racist, and intersectional.
