Lives in Orange County after attending Cal State San Marcos
Hello, My name is Kelly and I am from beautiful California. I graduated from California State University and hold a degree in English Rhetoric and Composition. I like to do things... including writing for this website.
I'm a college student. I want to make the world a better place.
Colgate University graduate and communications professional living in Southern California. Passionate about social activism and being a nice person on a daily basis.
I am writting for ForceChange in an effort to widen my perspective, refine my writing skills, and gain an on-line presence with a responsible site. I earned my Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Kansas in 2007 then moved to NYC for my Masters from New York University in 2008. In my free time I like to ski, cook, read, and enjoy Denver with my amazing group of friends. If there is an issue you want to see on ForceChange please let me know! I want to know what you think of my petitions and the issues I choose. Please leave comments and spark some conversation!

I'm a Cleveland native living in Chicago. I recently graduated from Loyola University Chicago where I majored in sociology and minored in urban studies and women/gender studies. I believe in taking a critical look at the world around you and taking steps to make that world better. I also love to read, dining out with friends, and hangin' with my Pug, Hazel.
Graduated from American University with a degree in History and a minor in American Literature.
Born and raised in Florida, I moved to NYC almost ten years ago to teach school. After teaching for five years, I took a hiatus to focus more energy on playing music in the band I'm the drummer of. After working numerous (seventeen, to be exact) odd jobs since leaving the teaching profession, I've gotten a taste of what life is like for so many hard-working but poverty-stricken Americans. I also had more time on my hands to spend reading. I got into and was inspired by the writings of activists like Saul Alinsky and David McTaggart. Social and environmental activism has now become as much of a passion for me as music.

I was born in Moscow, Russia and in 2002 graduated from Moscow State University, specializing in Journalism. In 2005 I left Russia to go to the United States because I didn't like the political climate in my home country. Personal freedoms were suppressed, and I believe that without freedom of speech and expression there can be no economical freedom either. I settled in Seattle, WA and got interested in activism. It actually works in this country, and that excites me. I consider myself a Democrat and try to help them succeed as much as I can. I am passionate about things like paid family leave, free and high-quality public education, tax reform and environmental issues. I volunteered for Barack Obama both times he ran for President, and also for Sierra Club.
I am a Southern California student with a passion for real change.
I am deeply interested in issues regarding the environment, animal rights, and social welfare. I hope to help make positive changes relating to these issues through Force Change.
