Hannah Jones is an organizer for the Responsible Endowments Coalition. She first encountered REC while working on Swarthmore Mountain Justice's fossil fuel divestment campaign. Since graduating from Swarthmore in 2012, she has continued to work with the national divestment movement to connect with grassroots organizations fighting extreme extraction on the ground. She has also recently started an organizing collective in Philadelphia with 5 friends called the Maypop Collective for Climate and Economic Justice. She owes much of her political development to mentors and friends in Swarthmore and Philadelphia, and to those fighting mountaintop removal in Central Appalachia. From them, she learned about the deeply entrenched nature of environmental, racial, and economic injustice.
When she is not organizing, Hannah sings and plays saxophone, plays ultimate frisbee, and ferments cabbage.
