Heidi has worked with Alliance for Community Engagement (ACE) in Vancouver, WA since 2018. ACE is a coalition of 14 climate and environmental justice organizations, including Washington Conservation Action, that advocates for strong, equitable climate policy in SW Washington. In 2022 the ACE coalition got Vancouver City Council to unanimously pass an ordinance against new bulk fossil fuel infrastructure, and to unanimously adopt an ambitious Climate Action Framework aiming for city-wide carbon-neutrality by 2040. Heidi is excited to continue building community in SW WA for Washington Conservation Action. She is a visual artist, art activist and the founder of Climate Toothpaste. She lives with her 11 year old daughter and enjoys dance, science fiction, gardening and spending time with friends.
