José is blessed to participate in the Covenant’s mission to advance the Catholic
Church’s call for us to love and care for God’s creation, especially for our most
vulnerable neighbors. He tries to affirm the moral, spiritual and non-partisan foundations of this appeal, so that we can build bridges through divisions and generate lasting, compassionate and cooperative solutions for the climate crisis. Before the Covenant, he served with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, the National Congress of American Indians, EPA’s American Indian Environmental Office, and the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army. José is a graduate of Brown
University and Villanova Law School.
