Vee works on developing a strategic and equitable transportation agenda for electrification, lower carbon fuels, and a reduced need to drive, seeking to build a powerful, networked coalition of leaders and partners to urge action at multiple levels of government. Prior to joining Climate Solutions, she was an Environmental Equity Fellow at the Greenlining Institute and the Transportation Equity Associate at Center for Sustainable Energy. In those capacities she worked on programs and policies to deliver equitable climate benefits to low-income and communities of color. Vee graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a Masters in International Relations and Environmental Policy and from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelors in Anthropology and International Relations. In her free time, Vee enjoys wandering through forests, traveling, dinner partying and educating herself on ways to create and demand for a more just and sustainable society.
