Courtney Rae (she/they/he)
Interim Executive Director of Programs
Courtney joined Bark in 2015 after five years of environmental advocacy and public education work with Environment Oregon and Columbia Riverkeeper. Courtney focuses her efforts at Bark on the big picture transformation of traditional environmentalism, conservation, and forest defense tactics, culture, and goals toward environmental justice that respects, centers, and serves IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, and People of Color) cultures, needs, and wisdom over the white supremacist status quo that traditional environmental work is built upon. She organizes Bark’s programmatic work, volunteer opportunities, and communications.
