Regional Coordinator for the Northeast
Iona Lutey is dedicating her life right now to stopping climate change. As Regional Coordinator for CCL’s Northeast Region, Iona delights in supporting the incredible work being done by State Coordinators, Group Leaders, Congressional Liaisons and all the precious volunteers in the region. She loves hearing about their victories and their challenges. And she loves being able to help! Iona joined CCL in 2013, founded the Columbia County, NY chapter, and has been Group Leader, Congressional Liaison and State Coordinator.
Iona’s career began as a marketer in television, cable TV and American Express. She shifted her efforts to her true love, community organizing: in public schools, small towns, local environmental battles, large Earth Day events and even presidential campaigns.
Interesting fact: Iona was born and spent her childhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! Iona considers her CCL work to be “play” so she plays all the time, but she loves ending a workday with a long beautiful bike ride and a family dinner.
