As an action fellow for the Alliance for Climate Action, James Coleman believes that everyone has a responsibility to take part in environmental justice and hopes to educate and inspire people to take action within his community. He gained interest when he realized that many people still don’t know the consequences of climate change. This led him to become Vice President of his high school’s Earth Club and create a school newspaper, The Warrior Post. In the future, he wants to research to find cleaner, cheaper, and more efficient sources of energy that can be used by everyone.
James Coleman was born and raised in the Bay Area. He is a competitive swimmer and enjoys playing the piano. He is currently a senior at South San Francisco High School.
