Sophie has worked as the Office Manager in our Oakland California office since August 2021. Her organizing work began as a canvasser with the PIRGs in college in Seattle, Washington, where she is from originally. She has since worked on various advocacy and electoral campaigns including a Save the Bees campaign and the 2020 presidential election.
In addition to office managing, she is helping coordinate a local ballot initiative to make Oakland the first city in the country to have a participatory budget where Oaklanders can collectively decide how much money goes to parks, libraries and more! She lives in beautiful West Oakland with her housemates and plants.
