Anjuli Kronheim: Bend the Arc is working to harness that political power and use it to win progressive issues domestically.
Anjuli Kronheim is from Philadelphia, where she first was turned onto activism when she was sixteen. She took a summer job canvassing for Greenpeace. She went to Ithaca College, studied Politics and Environmental Studies. From there, she joined Green Corps. During this program, she went to Des Moines; Boston; and finally to New York, organizing grassroots campaigns to impact environmental change. She moved to Los Angeles in September 2009 and ran to the rescue of OhioACT to fight the Issue 2 ballot initiative, which was corporate agriculture taking control of the Ohio Constitution. She is currently the Regional Organizer for Bend the Arc Southern California.
Walter Brasch: Long before the price of gas and oil began to plummet, socially conscious churches, universities, non-profit organizations, and local governments began to divest themselves of fossil fuel stock and shock the fossil fuel industry to understand the environmental and public health concerns.
