California State Lead, Clean Energy and Equity, Healthy People & Thriving Communities and Climate & Clean Energy
Alexis Cureton leads NRDC's efforts to dramatically reduce California's climate pollution in an equitable manner that serves the state's most vulnerable populations. As part of the Energy Efficiency for All (EEFA) project, he focuses on developing and strengthening clean energy programs and policies that are rooted in racial equity and are advanced by strong statewide coalitions. Before joining NRDC, Cureton worked at the Greenlining Institute and GRID Alternatives, where he advocated for improved clean mobility options for low-income communities of color in California. Cureton earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Clark Atlanta University and an MPA in policy analysis from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs. He is based in NRDC's San Francisco office.
