Julia Isaacs moved to Madison in 2009 and joined 350 Madison in January 2012. Though new to environmental activism, she brings a long career in public policy and a life-long interest in improving opportunities for low-income children and families. Her leading to take action on climate change is rooted in her Quaker faith and her understanding of how God is calling us to act in the world.
Beth Esser joined 350Madison in the Fall of 2013 after learning about Bill McKibben and his terrifying new math. With a B.A. in social work, concerns over climate change and environmental injustice are a natural part of her concern for a healthy & just world to live in. Her primary motivation for becoming a climate change activist however, comes from the love felt for her two young children whom she hopes will have a healthy and beautiful planet to live on.
