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.
Treva Brandon Scharf: Confident people don’t bash themselves; they don’t let negative thinking and self-loathing screw up a good workout or undermine their progress.
Edward Wasserman: The larger question, to me, was less why she did what she did, but why everybody seemed to care so much, and why her case provoked so much anger.
Joe Mathews: But with immigration flatlining and the climate drying up, it may soon be.
