Meet the Member Engagement Team

Heaven Edwards

Heaven first became an activist by mobilizing communities throughout California to ban fracking, a technique of natural resource extraction that was developed to meet the needs of a growing population with devastating consumption patterns. From going door to door to waving down people in the streets, Heaven can talk politics to nearly anyone. She made the population connection while studying development in Ghana. She loves children, but saw firsthand the impact that large families has on the life goals of women who aren’t using modern contraceptives. Supporting our members allows Heaven to utilize her experience with activism while continuing the fight for a more sustainable planet.

Maeve Doolittle

Growing up in Philadelphia, Maeve saw firsthand that not every child receives a quality education. She was empowered to take things into her own hands and make a difference in her local community. While in college, she recruited potential future educators to teach and improve schools in low-income areas. Maeve made the population connection in college when she did research on the relationship between the amount of education a woman receives and how many children she chooses to have. Maeve brings her experience in recruitment to support and empower our members to be activists in a way that is comfortable for them.
