Codi leads all policy and outreach efforts as GIPL’s Program Director, spending much of his spring at the Capitol during the legislative session. He also directs GIPL’s flagship programs, Power Wise and Solar Wise to bring sustainable energy to communities of faith. Codi has been involved with environmental justice campaigns and the philosophy of sustainability since college. After working with environmental organizations such as Oakleaf Mennonite Farm and Emory’s Office of Sustainability, Codi began to see how our relationship and treatment of the environment intersects with broader systems of injustice.
Codi holds a Master of Divinity degree from Candler School of Theology at Emory University with concentrations in Justice, Peacebuilding, and Conflict Transformation (JPCT), Theology and Ethics, and Human Rights. Also holding a BA in Religion from Samford University, Codi is interested in working at the intersection of religion, human rights, ethics, and the environment. He’s excited to be working directly with congregations as a resource for a wide array of sustainability practices. When he’s not leading GIPL programs, Codi plays the drums on Sundays with the worship band at Park Avenue Baptist Church in Atlanta.
