Elizabeth Moran
Environmental Policy Director, New York Public Interest Research Group
Liz Moran is the Environmental Policy Director with the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG). There, she leads the organization's campaigns on fighting climate change, protecting water quality, and reducing plastic pollution. This role is a return to the organization - she previously worked with NYPIRG as a student doing campus-based organizing on fracking and climate-related issues and as a Public Policy Associate and Vice-Chair of the Board. Before joining NYPIRG, Liz worked at Environmental Advocates New York as their Water & Natural Resources Director from 2014 to 2018. In that capacity, she led the organization's advocacy efforts on fracking, water pollution, land use and conservation, and invasive species issues. From 2013 to 2014, she was a community organizer for the Alliance for Quality Education, working in the Schenectady through Utica areas. Liz holds a bachelor's degree in environmental science from the State University at Albany. In her spare time, she enjoys taking photos in her community (and of her cat, Max) and spending time outdoors with her horse.
