Take Action

The Clean Power Plan, a nationwide policy to protect the climate through increased use of clean energy, is being threatened by Congress. Don't let them put your health and your children’s future at risk!

PSR Affiliation: Sr. Manager of Philanthropy

Christine Herrmann is a writer who specializes in fundraising for the arts, social services and political causes. Her career in the nonprofit world began in Southern California in the mid 1990’s, where she simultaneously taught writing at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her move to Portland, Maine, in 2001, lasted five years. The cold persuaded her south to Washington, DC, where she has served as a stewardship officer at the National Headquarters of the American Red Cross as well as a development consultant for Center for Mind-Body Medicine and Trees for the Future. She was delighted to join Physicians for Social Responsibility in December, 2013, as she has a special interest in its causes:  for years she’s been an advocate for clean air and the prevention of toxics in the environment. In 2012, she took on the numerous tour (and commuter) buses that park and idle for hours throughout DC. Weather permitting, she rides a bike (three miles) to work.  When she’s not at the office, she writes fiction and builds things out of found and repurposed wood.
