On our first edition of the New Year, we feature Move To Amend Executive Director Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap and our Outreach Director and Spokesperson David Cobb to talk with us about where we have been in 2014 and where together we are going in 2015. Happy New Year!

Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap is the National Director of Move to Amend and is a founding member of our National Leadership Team for the organization. She grew up in Santa Fe, NM and came to Humboldt County in 2001 by way of Western Massachusetts where she was studying education and community at Hampshire College. Kaitlin is also a Principal with Program on Corporations Law and Democracy, a Local Democracy Fellow for the Liberty Tree Foundation, and Board President of Democracy Unlimited. In November 2004 Kaitlin was elected to serve on the Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District Board. She is the youngest member to serve in this position, as well as the the first woman to take this office. She was re-elected in 2008 and again in 2012.

David Cobb is Outreach Director of Move to Amend and a founding member of our National Leadership Team. David was born in San Leon, Texas and worked as a laborer before going to college. He graduated from the University of Houston Law School and maintained a successful private law practice in Houston for several years before devoting himself to full time activism to achieve real democracy in the United States. In 2002 David ran for Attorney General of Texas, pledging to use the office to revoke the charters of corporations that repeatedly violate health, safety and environmental laws. He did not win the office, but the Green Party of Texas grew dramatically during his campaign from four local chapters to twenty-six. In 2004, he ran for President of the United States on the Green Party ticket and successfully campaigned for the Ohio recount. David also serves on the Board of Directors for Democracy Unlimited and is a Principal with the Program on Corporations, Law and Democracy and a Democratizing Elections Fellow with the Liberty Tree Foundation.
