I've co-founded three nonprofit environmental organizations.
Promote environmental and social justice locally and globally.
What Gives Me Hope
Seeing many more young people all the time becoming involved in activism, and knowing that they will raise yet another generation of committed people.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Pull all US troops out of all foreign countries, including Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and establish single payer health care coverage for all residents of the US. Then... well, I have a very long list! :-)
What/who changed my life and why
Meeting and working with the late David Brower on various environmental campaigns, and through him, meeting many influential people in the environmental movement.
