Wisconsin State Representative Greta Neubauer started her activism in high school organizing students for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign. Neubauer organized in the youth climate movement for a number of years, co-founding and going on to serve as the Director of the Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network. In 2018, Neubauer ran to represent her home district in the State Assembly and won. In 2019, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers appointed Neubauer to the Governor’s Task Force on Climate Change. She has recently been appointed to the Wisconsin Legislature’s powerful Joint Finance Committee.
“Young climate activists continue to push and support us to take steps towards a clean energy economy at the state level, but states can only do so much on our own,” said Wisconsin State Representative Greta Neubauer. “Having a President who understands the existential threat of climate change is critical, but he’ll need the support of young climate activists and elected officials from every state in order to make the changes we need.”
