Molly Freed

Policy Coordinator

Molly’s passion for applying critical deep green theory to practical problem-solving found a home within the Policy Coordinator position. She supports the Institute’s policy program initiatives by identifying policy barriers and providing resources, research, toolkits, education, and advocacy to remove these obstacles. She also coordinates the Institute’s Affordable Housing work with pilot teams around the country.

Molly grew up in Seattle before traveling south for her degree in Environmental Analysis with a Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies from Scripps College. She returned home after graduation and joined the Seattle 2030 team, working to promote a sustainable urban vision within the city. She moved to EnviroIssues in order to hone her inclusive public engagement skills for large infrastructure projects, and is happy to have landed at ILFI. She played soccer throughout college and continues to enjoy the sport, though she’s now supplemented it with ultimate frisbee and biking.
