Jodi Borello

Jodi Borello is a Community Organizer for the Center for Coalfield Justice. She and her family have been negatively impacted by the fossil fuel industry through multiple environmental crimes: Jodi has testified in front of two grand juries that resulted in criminal charges being filed. The knowledge she has gained over the years aided the PA Office of Attorney General in bringing charges in her case and led to eight recommendations to better protect Pennsylvanians from oil and gas operations. She brings this knowledge with her to CCJ to educate and help other impacted residents cope with the realities of fossil fuel development in our region.

Jodi was born on a mini farm in Washington County, Pa where she raised horses, goats, chickens, and rabbits, and was a member of 4H. She attended the University of Pittsburgh Main Campus and has a degree in Administration of Justice. After college she received additional schooling in Rome, Italy. She enjoys the outdoors, traveling, gardening, restoring and colorizing old photographs, and helping others.
