Jennette Gayer coordinates policy development, research, and legislative advocacy for Environment Georgia. She is based in Atlanta and organizes around a number of issues to bring cleaner air, water, and open spaces to Georgia.
She serves on the board of Citizens for Progressive Transit, a statewide group dedicated to increasing public transportation, and is a member of the Beltline Tax Advisory District Advisory Council.
Previously, she directed field campaigns to build a million solar roofs and cap global warming for Environment Georgia’s sister organization, Environment California.

Ms. Gayer grew up in Virginia and graduated from the College of William and Mary.
