You can be a progressive changemaker. You know what will strengthen your community the most. Together we’ll make it happen.
The lived experience of underrepresented people makes us the best people to decide what policies and solutions work for our communities. We build real power when we show up for each other - the power to build a more progressive, equitable and sustainable future.
I learned how to become a changemaker by tackling issues I was passionate about. Along the way, I learned organizing strategies and tactics that work. You already have power. By learning the skills, being consistent, and working together, we can achieve our goals.
When we unite with partners at local, state and national levels, progress accelerates. I am committed to bringing strong and diverse resources to every fight we face, connecting people, and forging relationships so we can improve our lives. Join me in building the power of community!
