Francesca "Frankie" Silverstein

2024 Summer Communications Intern

  • Pronouns: she/they

  • Education: Franklin High School

  • Hometown: Portland, OR

  • What brought you to Crag? Crag’s mission really resonated with me and I knew I wanted to support it in any way possible. I was especially impressed by Crag’s commitment to offering free or low-cost legal services, as well as their win defending the City of Portland’s restriction on bulk fossil fuel terminals.

  • What are your environmental/legal interests? I love policy work, but my experience is primarily in policy creation/adaptation. I’m excited to learn more about the defense/legal side of things and to gain insight into the world of environmental law. 

  • What will your work focus on while at Crag? I’ll be interning in the Communications department, helping to make people aware of all the awesome work Crag does. 

  • Favorite place to recreate or be in nature: Any body of water that I can swim in! But Crescent Lake has a special place in my heart. 

  • Hobbies: Reading, writing, skiing, crosswords (NYT ones are the best…), and listening to music— preferably in CD format

  • Favorite Book: White Oleander by Janet Fitch
