MORE ON MAGGIE FOX:
Maggie grew up in North Carolina, but fell in love with the West when she began her career as a teacher and community organizer on the Navajo and Hopi Reservations of Arizona and New Mexico. She met her future husband, Mark Udall, while working for Outward Bound. The couple bonded over a shared passion for the outdoors and Colorado’s special way of life, and have never looked back.
This spring Maggie stepped down as the President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project, formerly known as the Alliance for Climate Protection. Since joining the group in early 2009, Maggie led a campaign to help citizens around the world discover the truth about the climate crisis and take meaningful steps to bring about change. Along with former Vice President Gore, Maggie has participated in training thousands of climate educators from around the world, most recently in Beijing, Jakarta, Istanbul and Johannesburg.
Maggie has served on the boards of numerous environmental and women’s organizations. She currently serves on the board of the Green Fund and was honored by the Women’s Council on Energy and the Environment as the 2010 Woman of the Year.
Maggie is past National President of America Votes, a progressive coalition of over 60 organizations spearheading the largest voter mobilization and education effort in the nation. Prior to that Maggie worked with the Sierra Club, including five years as its Deputy Executive Director. She led numerous federal, state and regional policy campaigns on climate change, energy policy, Western public lands and water, Native American natural resource issues, and agricultural reform, as well spearheading the club’s partnerships in the broader progressive community.
Maggie lives with her husband in Eldorado Canyon, Colorado. They have two children.
