Gabriel started organizing in 1999, going door-to-door to protect lakes and rivers in his home state of Michigan and hasn’t stopped since. Over the years he’s been proud to work and volunteer for a variety of progressive groups and campaigns such as MoveOn.org, Human Rights Campaign, Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Clean Water Action, the Yes on 37 campaign, and more. In 2013, Gabriel realized a long-term goal by joining the RAN team as the Digital Campaign Strategist for the forest team. Gabe works to ensure that the crucial campaigns we run are optimized both to engage as many members of the public as we can while simultaneously striking fear into the hearts of corporate boardrooms.

“The most inspiring RAN value for me is the motto – Challenge Corporate Power. It’s what made me want to join the organization and what keeps me fired up and in the fight every day.”
