Gabi Lichtenstein

Tennessee Energy Democracy Field Coordinator

Gabi’s passion for energy democracy has guided her work since 2015. Gabi received her B.A. from Syracuse University and M.A. from the University of Georgia. In her graduate research, she studied the uneven harm caused by PG&E’s “public safety” power shutoffs and how organizers envision using microgrids for utility justice.

Gabi also has experience with energy governance research, labor organizing in the South and working for a public electricity agency in California. She is committed to transformative change led by impacted communities.

Gabi was raised in Upstate New York, where she developed her love for mountains and dramatic autumns. She is thrilled to now call Tennessee home and to support communities in their pursuit of just energy systems.
