Sophie Glass has worked on Triangle’s public policy team since 2014 and is a lead facilitator for urban planning issues. She brings people together to develop transportation, land use, and environmental justice policies. Sophie also specializes in public engagement so community members can shape the policies that affect their lives. Common threads throughout Sophie’s work include a commitment to social equity, clear information, and visual communication.
Some highlights from Sophie’s work include helping jurisdictions across Kitsap County allocate over $20 million in federal transportation funds. She also helped develop the country’s first roundtable with paid community participants to provide feedback to the US Environmental Protection Agency as they clean up the Duwamish River. Additionally, Sophie facilitated a taskforce that provided the Washington State Governor with 70 recommendations for how the state could support affordable housing.
Prior to joining Triangle, Sophie worked for environmental nonprofits in Colorado. She currently volunteers with organizations that address urban social and racial equity issues. Sophie holds a B.A. in Political Science and Environmental Issues from Colorado College and a Master of Urban Planning from the University of Washington.
In her free time, Sophie loves making silly faces with her baby Emmett, hiking in Washington’s beautiful forests, and baking challah for Shabbat dinner.
