Becca Claassen is a Santa Barbara County, California organizer with Food & Water Watch. She earned a Bachelor of Earth Science from California Polytechnic State University and then became a Doctor of Chiropractic. The birth of her daughter motivated Becca to focus on climate justice with the intention of leaving the world in better shape for future generations. Prior to joining Food & Water Watch, Becca helped found the Santa Barbara County Water Guardians and its grassroots effort to fight against increases in extreme oil extraction in the coastal California area.
