Friend | Queer | Board of Green Party Youth & LGBTQIA+ Caucuses | @CheriHonkala & Stein/Baraka Campaign Vet
After having worked for both sides of the aisle in national and state legislatures and experiencing the disheartening inanity of two-party politics (legislators making faces at each other during debates, legislators accepting bills wholesale from lobbyists, legislators crying in a corner voting against their conscience), Michael ended up in the the Green Party.
They currently serve on the Steering Committee for the Green Party's Youth Caucus and Lavender (LGBTQIA+) Caucus and is on the Green Party's National Committee. Michael also was a core staffer for the Stein/Baraka presidential campaign and a campaign manager for Cheri Honkala's PA-197 campaign (the first Green to be endorsed by Our Revolution).
Michael is also proud to have worked alongside many friends and comrades to have passed the 2016 amendment to the Green Party's platform to make the party more explicitly anti-capitalist and ecosocialist.
