Inside the Greenhouse is a monthly update on FCNL’s environmental advocacy and the emerging climate issues that impact our work.
Welcome to a special September edition of Inside the Greenhouse!
My name is Daren Caughron, and I’m pleased to be FCNL’s new legislative manager for Sustainable Energy and Environment. For this month’s edition of Inside the Greenhouse, I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself and our new program assistant, Carla Montilla, and ask for your feedback on how our climate team can best engage with you in a short survey below.
Meet Your Energy and Environment Team
Legislative Manager, Sustainable Energy and Environment
Prior to FCNL, I worked with Bread for the World on global climate and hunger policy. Before then, I was a Scoville Fellow at FCNL on the Peacebuilding team.
I love the outdoors. I am the grandson of farmers and am deeply passionate about solving the climate crisis. As you know, this is the most urgent challenge we face, and it’s imperative that we continue to seek equitable solutions that deliver a just future for all. It is wonderful to be in community with you!
Program Assistant for Sustainable Energy and the Environment
Carla Montilla recently graduated from American University’s School of International Service with a master’s degree in Ethics, Peace, and Human Rights.
She comes to FCNL with a deep passion for peacebuilding and the prevention of climate-induced conflict. Knowing that climate change is one of the key drivers of instability in a warming world, her expertise and passion are an invaluable addition to the team.

Over the years, many of you have written letters to lawmakers, written op-eds, build impactful relationships with your members of Congress, and financially supported FCNL’s climate work. For all of this, I am truly grateful.
As I begin this work, I want to hear more about your experience with our Sustainable Energy and Environment program and how you would like to continue to engage with our team going forward. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. We are very grateful for your input!
