Alexandria Villaseñor is a climate justice activist and a co-founder of Earth Uprising.

From Earth Uprising:

Soon after she began striking, Alexandria became a national and international Fridays for Future organizer for the global climate strikes that have occurred in the past year. For her activism, Alexandria was awarded the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival’s “Disruptor”, the 2019 Rachel Carson Award for Environmental Service and Politico identified her as one of the top 100 people influential in climate policy. Alexandria continued her activism, on September 23rd, Alexandria, alongside Greta Thunberg and 14 other children from all around the world, filed an international complaint with the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child alleging that the largest polluting nations on the planet are violating the human rights of children everywhere. Alexandria will continue her activism until she sees efficient action on the climate crisis.
