Lindsey Allen is a veteran environmental and social justice activist who has spent her career preventing commodity expansion into globally critical forest areas. In her previous role as the Director of RAN's Forest Program, Lindsey led RAN's Rainforest Agribusiness and Rainforest-Free Paper campaigns in their fight to stop palm oil and pulp and paper expansion into Southeast Asian rainforests. During Lindsey's tenure, the Forest Program won groundbreaking protections for forests, the climate, and human rights in Indonesia from fashion to agribusiness to publishing sectors, including an unprecedented commitment from the Walt Disney Company, changing everything about the way the company sources and uses paper across its entire global supply chain. Lindsey lives in San Francisco and graduated from Humboldt State University with a BA in Anthropology.
