Amelia works with SACE’s High Risk Energy team to encourage Georgia utility investment in energy efficiency, rather than new coal-fired power plants. She organizes educational and outreach events, meets with energy leaders, and mobilizes community support for clean energy. She also represents the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy in the Georgians for Smart Energy coalition.

Before joining SACE, Amelia helped establish an organization that facilitates a clean energy transition for economically vulnerable coalfield communities in West Virginia. She has also campaigned for clean energy initiatives in several states, and for Gulf Coast wetland preservation to protect New Orleans, her previous home. Amelia is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College and Green Corps, the field school for environmental organizing.
