Elijah Cetas

Grassroots Organizer

Elijah grew up in North Portland and has been involved in local grassroots movements for most of his life. He studied literature and history at Quest University Canada in the un-ceded territory of the Squamish Nation, and it was there he first got involved in the inspiring movement to hold the “Thin Green Line” against fossil fuel expansion.

Elijah joined CSE in 2019 as an intern with the Wild and Working Forest program before stepping into his role as Grassroots Organizer on fossil fuel and climate justice campaigns. He’s grateful to be back in Portland reconnecting with the communities he loves.
