Rosa Nelson


Rosa Nelson joins Nuestra Casa as the Water Justice Program Coordinator. In this role, Rosa leads our team of outreach workers who are conducting tap water quality tests in homes throughout East Palo Alto. Says Rosa, “I am passionate about environmental justice, specifically water quality, because I firmly believe everyone deserves access to clean, safe drinking water. Safe drinking water is a basic human right, and I want to work to ensure sustainable water access for the community of EPA.” 

Rosa has a BA in Environmental Studies from Saint Mary’s College of California. Her undergraduate research was in blue carbon sequestration in the Contra Costa Wetlands. When Rosa is not with us, you can find her hiking the hills of the Bay Area or upcycling clothes.
