Who We Are

Together with our volunteers and donors, this team is ready to accomplish our goal of clean air for every Oregonian all the time.

Mary Peveto

Mary Peveto

Executive Director

Mary Peveto (she/hers) co-founded Neighbors for Clean Air in 2010 to ensure cleaner air for all Oregonians. She activated friends, neighbors and people throughout our region to work for stricter standards to regulate air toxics in Oregon and to galvanize the citizen action necessary to effect change. She is a mother of three who calls herself an “accidental activist” who was pushed into action when she stumbled upon a national study published in 2008 that showed her daughters’ school to be ranked among the worst 2% in the nation at risk to toxic industrial air pollution. Mary is our guiding voice in organizing, policy and organizational vision.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Lisa Frack

Lisa Frack

President

“Clean air is something every Oregonian deserves, yet too few have. I serve on the board of Neighbors for Clean Air because I believe our unique combination of science, policy smarts, and hard work are holding the right polluters accountable to clear our air.”

Renee Hackenmiller-Paradis

Renee Hackenmiller-Paradis

Secretary

“I serve on the NCA board because clean air is critical to the public’s health – and securing that takes knowledge of the complex laws (or lack of) that regulate air quality. NCA has the knowledge and the passion to make real, lasting change to ensure Oregon’s clean air.”

Spencer Ehrman

Spencer Ehrman

Treasurer

“I’m a Portland native and have been devoted to cleaner air since serving on the City Club of Portland study committee on Air Toxics in 2013. I have advocated for clean air by representing City Club at the state legislature and at Washington and Multnomah Counties as well as with DEQ. If there is any additional incentive needed, I now have twin infant grandchildren and I am
committed to ensuring their health and security.”

“I serve on the NCA board to support strong science-based policy solutions to air pollution problems in Portland. Through this work, I hope to give back to the community that I have happily called home for 12 years by advocating for cleaner air for Oregonians.”
Aubrey Baldwin

Aubrey Baldwin

“I’ve been fighting for clean air for decades, as an activist and then as an attorney, and now as a Board volunteer at Neighbors for Clean Air.  I am passionate about NCA’s mission to ensure that all Oregonians breathe clean air all the time, and I believe that NCA’s focus on innovating, organizing, reforming and amplifying is an effective recipe for achieving that mission.”
