CUB is pleased to welcome Inonge Mubita to the team as our newest outreach intern.
Inonge Mubita joined the Citizens Utility Board of Minnesota in June 2019 as an Outreach intern. Before working at CUB Inonge was part of the 2018 Capitol Pathways cohort where she met CUB’s Executive Director, Annie Levenson-Falk, and began to explore her interest in renewable energy. During her Capitol Pathways fellowship, Inonge was able to gain valuable experience and knowledge as a policy fellow with Fresh Energy. At Fresh Energy she spent time assisting the Government Affairs specialist on securing and advancing clean energy policies. The work also involved collaborating with policy makers to communicate environmental and economic benefits of clean energy at the Legislature.
In relation to energy policy, Inonge is committed to equity and justice. During her time at Macalester, she worked as a program assistant at the Department of Multicultural Life where she created and facilitated dialogue series and lecture events aimed at fostering a culture of diversity and justice. Inonge is enthusiastic to bring her passion for equity and renewable energy in her position while providing consumers with money saving options and the necessary knowledge on their energy bills and energy policies.
Inonge is currently a senior at Macalester College with a double major in Environmental Studies and Political Science. She lives in St. Paul and enjoys exploring the Twin Cities dance and art scene.
