Lucas M. Brown
Lucas is from Leesburg, Virginia, and studies Economics at Oberlin College. He is passionate about helping people reduce global warming through policies that save money and increase profits. Lucas has researched for D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, helped design ILoveMountains.org, and worked as a Congressional environmental lobbyist. He founded and fundraised for both a self-sustaining Green Fund for campus energy efficiency projects and a sustainability-themed house whose residents weatherize local low-income homes.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
