Stories by Ana Fuentes
Ana Fuentes is the executive director of Amanecer People’s Project, a power building organization in El Paso, Texas that fights for clean air, clean water, and community power. Fuentes’s work is grounded on her experience migrating as a young child from Mexico to El Paso—where she now organizes to change the conditions that put those most affected by the climate crisis at the center of decision-making. She holds a master’s degree in Latin American and Border Studies and served as the campaign manager for Proposition K—a first of its kind ballot initiative with ambitious standards for comprehensive climate policy. Fuentes believes that community organizing is essential to solving the climate crisis, allowing us to turn the resources we have into the power we need to build the world we deserve.
