Yaron Miller leads the state policy and campaigns portfolio of Pew’s flood-prepared communities initiative. In this role, he oversees the development and implementation of policy campaigns to help states and communities mitigate flood risk and reduce recovery costs. This work includes advocacy at the state legislative and executive levels to secure funding for mitigation programs, pass innovative legislation that will spur flood risk reduction projects that rely on natural solutions, and promote the adoption of policies that make communities more resilient.
Miller previously worked on Pew’s program to restore America’s parks, where he was responsible for developing extensive business and gateway community support in 12 states and securing congressional backing for pertinent legislation. Before he came to Pew, he served as the director of national outreach for a national conservation nonprofit and worked on multiple electoral campaigns across the country.
Miller holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and environmental studies from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and a Master of Environmental Management from Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment.
