Tallulah Shepard

Meet Tallulah

As the Marketing & Communications Associate, Tallulah weaves digital storytelling, community engagement and climate resilience to amplify Greenbelt Alliance’s work.

Over the last five years, Tallulah (they/she) has developed a deep appreciation for the power of narratives as a catalyst for change. As a researcher and community organizer, she has honed her skills of facilitating, interviewing, and storytelling, seeking to translate complex ideas into engaging content that resonates with diverse audiences and helps bridge the gap between academia and the wider community. 

She cut her political teeth on community organizing through the September climate strikes of 2019, joining the millions of people taking to the streets to demand bold climate action and a transition from an extractive economy to a regenerative one. Since then, she has supported healing circles for BIPOC activists and political education workshops. Her background in film and media, and experimentation with video art has cemented her passion for visual art and digital media, and she remains deeply committed to centering diversity, equity and belonging in her communications work.

Tallulah studied Psychology, Film and Digital Media at UC Santa Cruz and recently received her M.A. in Anthropology & Social Change from the California Institute of Integral Studies, with a particular research interest in contemporary social movements, critical media analysis and image-making, capacity building and urban geography.

She currently lives in Oakland with her friends and their three dogs, where she enjoys weekend bartending, biking, cooking, (lightly) dabbling in all creative endeavors known to man, and wrestling with her dogs (who usually win).
