Steering Committee

Rick Morris

Rick Morris lives squarely in the intersection of faith, politics, and the environment. He got into climate change advocacy after a superstorm ripped through his home state of NJ while he was attending seminary. He holds two degrees in religion and theology (B.A. Wheaton College '10, M.Div Princeton Theological Seminary '14) and trained as an organic farmer in Japan and NJ.

Rick currently works a clean energy organizer with the Sierra Club, where he and a committed group of activists are building a movement for a just, equitable, and fast transition to 100% renewable energy in Rochester, MN. He also serves on the Rochester Parks Foundation board, represents Y.E.C.A. on the JUST Transitions working group of the US Climate Action Network, and is an occasional lecturer and preacher.
