Martin Farrell came to the University of Oregon from Philadelphia to study environmental law. After finishing his undergraduate degree in English at Saint Joseph’s University (SJU) in 2017, he worked in Development & Community Relations at a nonprofit serving people experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. Yearly trips to Appalachia during his time at SJU sparked his passion for the intersection of environmental justice and human rights. In his free time he loves to run, hike, read, and listen to music. He cannot wait for in person concerts to start again!
