Jason Rainey joined International Rivers as Executive Director in 2011. He has led the organization in its international expansion for greater effectiveness in the dam-building hotspots of the world, expanding and establishing offices in South America, Africa, and Asia. Jason supports an international staff and network of civil society partners campaigning against destructive dams, advancing trans-boundary river protection, and influencing global investment patterns toward decentralized and human-scaled energy and water solutions. Before joining International Rivers, Mr. Rainey served as Executive Director of the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in his home watershed from 2005-2011, where he built a grassroots movement to restore a healthy Yuba River, championed the decommissioning of two federal dams, protected wild salmon runs, improved water quality and habitats, fought new dams, and developed the Wild & Scenic Film Festival into one of the largest and most successful environmental film events in North America. He has served as a steering committee member of the California Hydropower Reform Coalition, a founding member of the Calling Back the Salmon Committee, and a board member for SalmonAid. He has also worked as an educator, researcher and organizer for human rights and environmental initiatives throughout the world, including in Russia, Zimbabwe, Nicaragua, and Thailand.
Shilpa Jain is currently rooting herself in Oakland/Berkeley, CA, where she serves as the Executive Director of YES!. Prior to taking on this role, Shilpa spent two years as the Education and Outreach Coordinator of Other Worlds and ten years as a learning activist with Shikshantar: The Peoples’ Institute for Rethinking Education and Development, based in Udaipur, India. Shilpa has facilitated dozens of transformative leadership gatherings, working with hundreds of young leaders from over 80 countries. She is committed to using very simple human technologies – like listening, speaking from the heart, slowing down, breathing, and connecting to nature – to support authentic relationships, a deeper sense of self, an essential shift in consciousness, and aligned living practices. She is passionate about dance and music, organic and natural farming, upcycling and zero waste living, asking appreciative questions and being in community. All of her work seeks to uncover ways for people to free themselves from dominating, soul-crushing institutions and to live in greater alignment with their hearts and deepest values, their local communities, and with nature.
