Jessica Hodge is a National Communications Strategist in the Washington, D.C. office, working with Earthjustice litigators, clients, and communities on Healthy Communities issues. She is engaging impacted communities and the media to increase support for, among others, tighter national air standards and fighting off attacks by polluters' allies in Congress.
Jessica comes to Earthjustice after 13 years at the Sierra Club, where she played many roles including field organizer, lobbyist, and staff manager. After college in Texas, Jessica headed to “Sin City” to tackle the growing urban sprawl and air pollution problems. There, she learned an appreciation for craps and public lands. Next stop was our nation’s capital, where she worked on everything from off-road vehicles and grazing to judicial nominations and climate change. After eight years with the Sierra Club organizing department, she landed at Earthjustice and now works to make our communities healthier places to live and work.
Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health, to preserve magnificent places and wildlife, to advance clean energy, and to combat climate change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.
