Peter Brown

Peter Brown has been speaking, writing and teaching about technology, economics and social change for over thirty years. His work has been published in Occupy.com, Nation of Change, Rally, Comrades! and other venues. He worked in industry as a journey-level machinist through the 1970s and into the 80s, where he experienced both the rise of new technology and the early stages of social destruction. Following a twenty-two-year hiatus from industry he taught machine technology at Laney Community College in Oakland, CA for twelve years. He has been an active member of four unions, a social justice activist, and worked consistently for the rights of students and faculty, especially part-time faculty, while at Laney College. Mr. Brown also has danced throughout his life, and professionally for over 23 years, performing, teaching and creating in ballet and modern dance. More recently, he has focused on climate work with youth. He is a founding member of the League of Revolutionaries for a New America, lrna.org.
