Our society doesn't value the work of activists, volunteers, and organizers. But if you're on this page, maybe you do.

I am a co-Chair of the Green Party of New Jersey for the term starting June, 2018. I am also the Chair of the Green Party of Morris County, and I volunteer with many different non-partisan organizations and committees.

My goals are to organize and facilitate many kinds of educational events to raise awareness of the causes and possible solutions to our greater challenges such as capitalism, imperialism, white supremacy, poverty, and environmental destruction. I also work to build our communities and networks, organizing and empowering people for the long-term, while trying to fill short-term needs. I am always collecting donations of food, hygiene items, clothing, sewing machines and fabric, and other materials and items as well as cash to give directly to people in need.

I work every day with all kinds of people to try to lift up our communities and unite our movements and together change the system that is destroying us. I am grateful to all of you for your support so I can continue to do this work.

Supporter
$5 or more per month

Help build the general fund used to provide direct aid to someone in urgent need.

Help LGBTQ couple make a new life
$10 or more per month

Marco and Rafael (not their real names) escaped danger to start a new life in the U.S. You can help them on this journey and in return you will be updated on their progress and receive a thank you card in their own words. So far, we have moved them into emergency shelter and then into a longer-term housing situation and they are both beginning new jobs. You have also helped them access legal assistance, food, furniture, and work clothes. Soon they will be entirely self-sufficient thanks to your generosity.

Water treatment
$10 or more per month

Across New Jersey, people are exposed to lead and other contaminants in their drinking water. Some municipalities are handing out filters that can help remove most of the lead but not all and only for a short time. Please help me build a fund to provide reverse osmosis systems to affected individuals and families who can't afford them. There is no safe level of lead and until our governments step up to resolve the infrastructure deficits that they are responsible for, the community must come together to protect our most vulnerable. Each system can cost a couple of hundred dollars and the more money we can raise, the more likely it is that we can get wholesale discounts. I will cover the installation myself and associated costs for each unit you help pay for.

General housing
$10 or more per month

Dream big! Once I get enough support, I will buy a small apartment complex for people in need of housing and other assistance in  building a new life and you can be a member of this special program. Stay tuned for more details.
