Mia Shilpi


As a community organizer, Mia brings together organizations, local officials, and policy leaders to reduce polystyrene waste and pollution. Her area of focus is Southern California.

Born in Orange County and raised all around Los Angeles, Mia spent her formative years attending high school less than a mile away from the beach. She earned two associate degrees in History and Public Policy at Santa Monica College, before earning her Bachelor's in Political Science at the University of California, Davis. Much like all children, Mia grew up wanting to save the world. She never really grew out of that, just got smarter about how to actually do it.
