La’Tonya Troutman

Regional Communications Associate

La’ Tonya Troutman was born and raised in community that hosted a coal plant. She grew up in a household with a high energy burden. This gives her a personal understanding of how fossil fuels impact on a community.

La’Tonya brings this experience to her work. She creates strategic communications tactics to give voice to the voiceless. She has served with many organizations to fight for environmental and social justice. This includes serving as the NAACP Environmental Justice Branch Chair. She also launched a solar installation training program called Soul Power Project. This effort trained ten students to become solar installers.

She brings this same passion, zest, and heart as the Heartland Region Communications Associate for Solar United Neighbors. This covers her home state of Indiana. It also includes Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

La’Tonya’s personal greeting to everyone is Merry Christmas. This greeting is also her mantra because she believes “The Present” is a gift from God to enjoy daily.
