Prem Rajgopal

Prem (pronounced like frame with a p instead of an f) is an organizing fellow with the Center for Coalfield Justice who grew up in suburban Pittsburgh. He received his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Southern California in Mechanical Engineering and his Master’s Degree from the University of Pittsburgh in Civil Engineering with a focus in Sustainable Engineering. At Pitt, he discovered his passion for organizing around environmental justice and decided to pivot away from the engineering world. Prem is very interested in the intersection of labor and people, centering economics with environmental justice. When he’s not busy organizing, he’s probably listening to music (according to Spotify, he listened to 125 days of music last year). But when he’s not listening to music (or sometimes when he is), you can find him playing chess or basketball, eating incredibly spicy food or copious amounts of ice cream, reading books or listening to podcasts, and enjoying snobby or cheap beer alike with his friends.
