Carli Jensen is U.S. PIRG's Toxics Campaign Director. Her work includes overseeing the national Prevent Chemical Disasters Campaign, and representing and advocating for U.S. PIRG’s positions on toxics issues including federal toxics regulations, toxics in consumer and personal products, toxic toys, and worker safety from toxics in the workplace.
Ms. Jensen is originally from Seattle, Washington. She attended Western Washington University for her undergraduate degree, and the University of Washington School of Law for her J.D. with a concentration in Environmental Law. As a law student, she represented clients in matters ranging from natural resources claims to federalism issues as a member of the Environmental Law Clinic, and she successfully prosecuted a land use case as an intern at the Seattle City Attorney’s Office. She also worked on federal legislative issues as a summer intern in the U.S. Senate.
Ms. Jensen is a member of the Washington State Bar, and practiced law in Seattle before transitioning to political campaign work. She has worked in field, finance, and management on campaigns, and her political work brought her from Washington State to New Jersey before she came to U.S. PIRG in Washington, D.C..
Ms. Jensen is a proud Pacific Northwesterner who, very stereotypically, loves good coffee and the great outdoors. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to some good old Motown soul, refurbishing her classic 1980’s 10-speed bike, and writing fiction.
