Justin Onwenu

Justin has become widely known in Michigan advocacy circles in recent years for his dynamic community organizing in the movement for climate action, clean air and water, and public health at the local, state, and national levels.

Justin was the youngest member appointed by Governor Whitmer to both the Michigan Advisory Council on Environmental Justice and the Black Leadership Advisory Council. He also served as the emcee for the inaugural MI Healthy Climate Conference held last spring in Detroit. In addition to his vast experience and continued organizing work, he is currently attending Columbia Law School in New York City, where he serves as student body president.

Justin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in organizing and advocacy, and will be a much-needed voice of younger generations as a member of the Michigan LCV board of directors.
