Alex Moisa is a dedicated public servant who wants to help find new ways to tackle climate change and help Climate Resolve succeed in their mission for a “just and resilient future.” A Southern California native, Alex got his start in the world of environmental policy by doing research on sustainable development and its applicability in developing countries. During his time at Northwestern University, he did archival research for Professor Keith Woodhouse, author of The Ecocentrists, regarding radical environmental groups and their successes and failures in the 1980s and 1990s. His research culminated in his Senior year Honor’s Thesis entitled “The Cost of Success: Environmentalism, Anti-Environmentalism, and the EPA, 1970-1985,” which focused on the origins, early policies and programs, and rising partisanship within the Environmental Protection Agency.
Prior to joining Climate Resolve, Alex has been highly active in the public sector, having worked in the Finance department for the City of El Segundo, and as an intern for Senator Kamala Harris and in the CAO Office for the City of Los Angeles. He also has experience in the non-profit sector, having spent time as an intern for the James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy.
Alex has a BA in History and Political Science from Northwestern University, and graduated with Honors and Magna Cum Laude in 2019.
Alex currently lives in Whittier, CA, and spends his time reading, writing, and catching up on the latest movies and TV shows his friends recommend to him.
