Frongillo, Dominic

Dominic Frongillo made history at age 22 by becoming the youngest person ever to serve on the Town Council in Caroline, New York, USA. Internationally recognized for his work in climate change and clean energy, in 2012, Frongillo founded Elected Officials to Protect New York, a successful bipartisan campaign of nearly 1,000 elected officials across the state that helped win New York's statewide ban on fracking. A five-time delegate to the United Nations, Frongillo is trained by Al Gore, served under Governor Paterson on New York's Climate Action Plan advisory panel, and is a national trainer for the Front Line Leaders Academy and Young Elected Officials Network. A finalist for the national Barbara Jordan Leadership Award, Frongillo appeared in the documentary Dear Governor Cuomo and author Jeff Thigpen named Frongillo one of America’s 16 most notable young elected leaders. Frongillo speaks frequently at universities such as Brown, Cornell, and Furman on topics of climate change, sustainability, and social movements.
