Georgia Faye Hirsty has been working in the environmental justice movement for 10 years, particularly focused on the use of non-violent direct action as a tactic for change. She has been working with Greenpeace since 2007 both nationally and internationally. She spent a number of years sailing on Greenpeace's ships and currently is the National Warehouse Program Manager for Greenpeace US. In addition to being training and storage centers, the Greenpeace warehouses also serve as community centers based in the understanding that Greenpeace's mission necessarily includes solidarity with other environmental and social justice work. Last year, Georgia worked extensively on the campaign against Shell's Arctic drilling and was one of the activists that suspended herself from the St. Johns Bridge in Portland, OR, blocking Shell's vessel from passing for 40 hours.
