Jennifer Allen

Board Member

Jennifer Allen joined the League of Conservation Voters in 2013 to develop Chispa (“spark” in Spanish), a program aimed at building the voice and power of Latino families and leaders in the fight against climate change. With grassroots community organizing programs operating in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Nevada, New Mexico and Maryland, Chispa has become one of the largest efforts of a national environmental organization focused on Latino communities.

For more than a decade, prior to joining LCV, Jennifer was the founding Executive Director of the Border Action Network, then Arizona's largest immigrant and border community organization, where she developed successful state and national policy campaigns that were led by immigrant families. She serves on the board of Las Adelitas Arizona PAC and is an appointee to citizen advisory committees for the City of Tucson where she lives with her family.
