Kimberlee (Kim) Wright has worked in the public interest and for statewide conservation efforts for 30 years. The first part of her career in Wisconsin centered on protecting natural areas on public and private lands while working for social justice as a volunteer for the elderly, disabled and otherwise marginalized communities. As the executive director of Midwest Environmental Advocates, she is able to bring her experiences working for social and environmental justice together in service to communities fighting for public health and the environment. Wright finds strength and inspiration from Senator Gaylord Nelson’s deep belief in the power of ordinary people to make decisions that protect the interests of future generations. She holds degrees in rural sociology and law from UW–Madison.
