Jinesse Reynolds, Executive Committee Chair
After moving back to Marin County six years ago, I changed focus from my full-time career in the Outdoor Industry to spending more time on critical environmental issues. I volunteered for beach clean-ups, climate marches, joined the Sustainability Commission in San Anselmo and Plastic Free Marin (Sierra Club Marin Group Committee). In November 2018, San Anselmo Town Council adopted the Single-Use Foodware Reduction Ordinance that I lead and co-authored, one of the most robust in California. Through this experience, I met a network of change-makers and was exposed to all layers of stakeholders, NGO’s and governmental officials. It kickstarted me into wanting to do more, believing that one person can truly make a difference. I was inspired to join the Marin Group Executive Committee because I believe we are running out of time to make the necessary changes to mitigate the Climate Crisis. We need all hands on deck to expedite local, national, and global environmental policy and initiatives. I am committed to this effort and ready to jump in and show up to help make it happen. I am a life-long outdoor enthusiast enjoying both water and mountain activities. My artistic medium is oil painting.
