Paloma Rose Henriques is a Senior Petrochemical Campaigner at Friends of the Earth. Paloma supports resilient communities working to protect their health and our shared climate and oceans by preventing the construction of new petrochemical plants. She works to end the financing of these facilities that poison communities, contribute to the climate crisis, and mainly produce single use plastic that threatens marine life globally. Paloma previously worked with Greenpeace USA as a fundraiser and organizer, and Greenpeace International as a ship’s crew member, campaigning to protect oceans, forests, and the arctic. She holds an M.S. in Marine Policy from the University of Maine and a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Cruz. When she’s not campaigning, Paloma can be found adventuring outdoors, renovating her off-grid cabin and sailboat, and enjoying plant-based food.
