Jose Martinez-Diaz

Engagement Director


Jose is the current Engagement Director at Greenpeace USA leading an organizational evolution centered around people-powered advocacy. He has been instrumental in transforming the organizing department and its relationship with volunteers, reshaping a strategic approach to digital tools and online communications and advocacy, launching the Fire Drill Fridays partnership with Jane Fonda, and building the first large-scale voter contact program in Greenpeace USA’s history.

Before joining Greenpeace Jose led local, national, and international campaigns on issues as diverse as tax and healthcare reform, minimum wage, immigrant and indigenous rights, federal and local elections, clean air, and against extractive industries in the Amazon. He has run advocacy campaigns in five continents, trained campaigners and activists in over a dozen countries, and spoken at international panels and conferences on strategic campaigning, public mobilization, and land/human rights.

Born and raised in Mexico, Jose first moved to the United States to organize immigrant communities in rural North Carolina, later moving to Washington, D.C. to obtain a M.A. in International Development. Jose has worked for SEIU, was a senior advisor to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign in 2016, and Campaigns Director at Purpose. An organizer by trade and at heart, he is passionate about building solidarity at the micro level and systems change at the macro level. When not working, you can find him spending time with his partner and two daughters and/or thinking about baseball.
