El’gin joined BGA in October 2020 as Director of Occupational and Environmental Health and Equity (OEHE) at BlueGreen Alliance. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, El’gin’s passion stems from his experiences and knowledge of environmental and social injustices that have plagued disenfranchised and marginalized communities both in the US and abroad. As OEHE Director, he works to bring a more just approach to environmental and occupational health structures and systems. He aims to ensure that vulnerable and historically marginalized populations engaging in precarious work are protected regardless of worker classification, and looks to elucidate precarity and financial instability as a factor of worker health and wellness. El’gin uses his technical expertise as an industrial hygienist to enhance the capacity of BGA’s occupational and environmental health agenda.
