Sierra Club’s Hoosier Chapter Director, Robyn Skuya-Boss (he/they), has been a longtime advocate for the role of nonprofit and issue-based organizations in civic life. After earning two degrees at Iowa State University in Political Science and International Studies, Robyn began building their professional career as an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, starting in Washington DC as a Federal Legislative Intern with the Human Rights Campaign and at One Iowa, a non-profit where they campaigned for marriage equality in their home state of Iowa.

Robyn relocated to Indiana in 2013 when their husband, Dr. Jacob Boss was accepted into Indiana University’s graduate program in Religious Studies. Robyn quickly fell in love with Brown County and Yellowwood. Robyn can also be found walking Bloomington trails to spot wildlife with a particular interest in encountering chipmunks which are a favorite. 

Shortly after moving to Indiana, Robyn joined Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign. In the decade since, they’ve led and supported campaigns that successfully called on Indiana’s investor-owned utilities to retire aging fossil fuel power plants and to invest in renewable energy resources. 

Throughout their career Robyn has developed a breadth and depth of professional skills in non-profit management including fundraising, volunteer engagement, strategic planning, administration, grassroots lobbying, and communications. They are firmly committed to building collaborative communities because “we’re all in this together, and it takes a strong connected community to be good stewards of our human-built and natural worlds.”
