Charles Miller (he/him)
Policy Director

Charles is no stranger to making a difference in the world of conservation and environmental protection in Alabama. He was honored as the inaugural recipient of the Alabama Rivers Alliance’s Emerging Leader award in 2018, and his dedication and impact have only grown since. Charles was a founding member of ARA’s Young Professionals group, and after demonstrating his deep love for Robert’s Rule, quickly became a member of the Board of Directors. In 2021, he was recognized nationally with the Emerging Leader award from River Network.



Charles has an impressive background, having clerked or interned with Southern Environmental Law Center, Black Warrior Riverkeeper, American Rivers, and the EPA’s Office of Criminal Enforcement, Forensics, and Training. He holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Alabama School of Law and a B.A. in political science from UA, as well as a master’s certificate in nonprofit management from UAB.


After serving as the Policy Manager at Missouri Confluence Waterkeeper, Charles is thrilled to return to Alabama with his wife, Robin, and continue his work to #DefendRivers. He is of no relation to Victoria.
