Madeline Rose leads Pacific Environment’s climate campaigns, with an initial focus on getting ships off fossil fuels. A tenacious advocate and seasoned campaigner, Madeline joins Pacific Environment after a decade of advocacy in the humanitarian and peacebuilding sectors where she built and led national and global campaigns to reduce global levels of violence and alleviate human suffering. Madeline was the chief architect behind multiple successful legislative campaigns, including those that led to the passage of the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2018 and the Global Fragility Act of 2019 in the United States Congress. She’s designed and led global advocacy campaigns to ensure adequate global responses to the Central American child migrant crisis of 2014 and the West African Ebola outbreak of 2014, to halve urban violence by 2030, and to replace endless war with peacebuilding. A California native, Madeline started her career in carbon reduction and views her role at Pacific Environment as a homecoming.
Madeline holds a bachelor’s degree in Diplomacy & World Affairs from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California, USA; served as a National Security and Foreign Policy Advisor for the Sanders Campaign for President; and serves on the Board of the Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship. She works in Pacific Environment’s San Francisco office.
