Carly Ebben Eaton is the Wisconsin Policy Organizer at the BlueGreen Alliance. She grew up in Greenville, Wisconsin.
Carly is a scientist by training, and her research has focused on the chemistry of aerosol particle production, nitrogen oxides, and ozone, and the impacts of this chemistry on air quality and climate. In 2014, she became a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Chemistry at UC Berkeley and a member of UAW Local 5810, the Union of 12,000 Postdoctoral and Academic Researchers across the University of California.
Carly served as Financial Secretary of UAW 5810, and she became an organizer with the union in 2017, after determining that the best way for her to defend science – especially climate science – was to work to strengthen her union and build collective power with her fellow researchers. She also served on the Executive Committee of the Alameda Labor Council and as Co-Chair of the Council’s Climate & Environmental Justice Caucus. Prior to joining the BGA team, Carly was the Development Director for the Labor Network for Sustainability.
Carly holds a B.S. in Chemistry from Marquette University and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Northwestern University. She lives near Madison, WI with her husband and two kids.
