Lauro Martinez

Water Policy Research Fellow

Lauro was born and raised in Laredo, Texas, where he recently served as the Climate & Water Outreach Coordinator for the Rio Grande International Study Center. Through his outreach, he empowered his community to become active participants in local discourse, organizing against the destructive Texas/Mexico border wall, educating the next generation of advocates through the Laredo Climate Cohort, and advocating against extractive and harmful environmental injustices. After graduating from St. Edward’s University with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Policy, Lauro worked as an Environmental Field Consultant across Central Texas for more than three years. During that time, he learned the impact of Federal, State, and local environmental regulations on protecting our environment and water systems. Lauro is excited to join the Bayou City Waterkeeper and is committed to sharing his experiences with others to help people connect to and fall in love with often-overlooked aspects of their daily lives.
