Pamela Martinez

Community Energy Resilience Project Manager

Pamela Martinez has over five years of experience in the nonprofit sector working to address social challenges specific to farm workers and immigrant communities. Prior to joining The Climate Center, she worked with the UFW Foundation as the Emergency Relief Program Manager. Through her Program Manager role, she helped provide critical resources to farm workers and immigrant communities throughout the Pacific Northwest during the COVID-19 pandemic by assisting in establishing a call center that provided direct relief to those in need.

Pamela started her career as a volunteer coordinator where she recruited volunteers for various projects. She then joined the UFW Foundation as a Community Organizer where she designed and implemented innovative solutions for social justice challenges in rural communities. She has also been involved in several advocacy campaigns and policy initiatives on issues such as banning harmful pesticides, gender equality, and human rights.

Her passion and dedication to serve communities through the nonprofit sector stems from her upbringing and farm worker parents. Pamela looks forward to channeling her passion of working with underserved communities and creating meaningful change one step at a time in the environmental movement.
