Dominique is a grassroots organizer and researcher based in Harlem, New York. She is the New York and Mid-Atlantic Regional Organizer for 350.org, an international climate movement. Prior to joining 350, she volunteered as a community organizer with residents of NYC’s public housing developments. In her current position, Dominique is responsible for building a multiracial base of communities affected by climate change. As a Black organizer, Dominique believes relationships are essential to successful base-building and being strategic requires organizing from the intersections of climate and other systems of oppression. At this moment, it is important for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) to learn organizing and campaigning skills, focusing on racial justice in the climate movement. Her main objective in this work is to uplift the labor and stories of those who have been erased from the climate movement, while creating avenues for engagement utilizing an organizing orientation where communities can empower themselves. In her free time, Dominique enjoys reading Black feminist writings, running along the Hudson River and cooking vegan meals.
