Following the recent news of River Action expansion, we are pleased to welcome onboard our new team member Amy Slack as Campaigns Manager. Amy’s appointment strengthens our team considerably as we endeavour to rescue more rivers.
As Campaigns Manager, Amy will be working closely with James Wallace, CEO, Charles Watson, Founder, and the broader team. Her expertise and experience in campaigning will provide valuable insights as she leads the development and delivery of River Actions campaigns. With Amy’s guidance, we will make greater strides in rescuing more of Britain’s rivers through targeting river polluting industries and increasing pressure on the UK Government.
Amy joins us from Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) where she led the Campaigns & Policy team for four years – working alongside other activists and campaigners. At SAS, Amy played a key and varied role – from exposing the extent of the sewage scandal, holding polluters to account, demanding urgent government action, and leading SAS’s public actions, protests and paddle outs!
Amy Slack, River Action Campaigns Manager says:
“I’m super excited to be joining the inspiring River Action Team as Campaigns Manager. Having been part of the River Action Advisory Board for the last year, it’s been an honour to have supported the organisation’s growth, providing advice and guidance where I can. Now, I look forward to helping the team to #stopriverpollution for good.”
James Wallace, River Action CEO says:
“When we drafted the new Campaigns Manager job description we had one person in mind: Amy Slack. Imagine our surprise when she applied! Just as she has proven with Surfers Against Sewage, Amy will bring unique insight to River Action’s urgent mission, helping ensure that clean rivers are at the top of every politician, voter, business leader and consumer’s priorities. There is nothing more important than water security, and we are blessed to have Amy join our team of positive disruptors.”
