Charissa Verdoorn, Outreach & Policy Manager

As Outreach & Policy Manager, Charissa works to organize and equip faith and spiritual communities to take action for climate justice, and to grow the interfaith climate movement. She loves to see people of faith using their unique voices to act for a just and sustainable world. Charissa taught fourth grade at a Spanish Immersion school for three years, taught at an international school in Cali, Colombia for two years, and returned to Minnesota in 2018 to connect her concern for climate change and her faith. She lives in Minneapolis, MN with her husband and cat. She enjoys reading, hiking, and attempting to garden!
