Matt Brodeur is a candidate for the Master of Public Affairs (DC Concentration) at the LBJ School. He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in political science, with certificates in environmental policy and international relations, and minors in history and Spanish.
After graduating, Brodeur worked at the Center for EcoTechnology, an environmental nonprofit, where he produced communications content for state-funded programs. Later, he served as deputy organizing director of the Massachusetts Democratic coordinated campaign, managing the mobilization of in-state volunteers for competitive swing state races in 2020. He serves as president of the Cape & Islands Democratic Council, a local political action committee dedicated to electing Democrats to municipal and state office.
Brodeur is interested in U.S. climate policy and the structural and political obstacles to advancing policy within the federal government. He hopes to find a Policy Apprenticeship in DC focused on climate policy advocacy within a nonprofit organization or think tank.
