My name is Dakota Tangredi. I’m currently a fourth-year environmental science major, eternal learner, Portland Climate Action Collaborative intern at IRCO Africa House, and Resident Assistant for Portland State University on-campus housing. In terms of how I relax, I’m a rock climber, hiker, and avid laugher. I’m also vegan and an animal advocate. I use he, him, and his pronouns and am deeply passionate about environmental justice and climate justice.
