Sriram (he/him) is the International Strategy Director for Taproot Earth. A first-generation immigrant whose family landed in the rolling hills of north central Florida, Sriram’s first foray into organizing was the anti-war movement of the early 2000s. Since then, he has been fueled by a passion for bridging social movements across borders to confront entrenched power and win victories for people and the planet. A seasoned corporate campaigner and strategist, Sriram has led teams into the belly of the beast — from corporate shareholders’ meetings to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) — to demand justice for communities on the frontlines of extractivism. As International Strategy lead, he strengthened ties between communities in the U.S. Gulf South and the Global South, where much of his family still lives. Sriram is also a 2016 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Leader.
While he now resides on the traditional territories of the Kootenai, Qlispe, and Salish people in Missoula, Montana, a part of Sriram’s heart longs for the white sand beaches and sunkissed shores of the Florida Gulf Coast.
