EcoNews Coordinator & Journalist
A resident of Eureka since 2017, Caroline Griffith is an avid public meeting attendee and can often be found at City Council and Board of Supervisors meetings. When asked as a kid what she thought she might be when she was 35, her response was “environmental something”. That prediction was fairly accurate, as environmentalism has been a factor in much of the political work that she has done.
She is excited to highlight the intersections of environmentalism and social justice that are happening in Humboldt County.
