Alejandra Nunez is CGC’s first General Counsel.
Ale comes to CGC from Sierra Club, where, as a Senior Attorney, she led litigation and regulatory work on a range of climate change policies. This includes the Clean Power Plan and the New Source Performance Standards, the CAFE and GHG vehicle standards for light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, carbon pricing, clean transportation policies, and more. She worked on several legislative initiatives, and also focused on environmental justice matters, building partnerships with environmental justice groups and advocating for the inclusion of EJ concerns into multiple climate policies at the federal and state levels. At CGC she’ll spearhead much of the legislative and coalition-building work for the National Climate Bank campaign, as well as support legal activity across the organization.
