Alex Burch

Field Director

Why do you to this work?

I want to uplift and rebuild communities in poverty. I want to create change.

How has this work changed you?

I have grey hair now. I am now able to clearly see how industry and government affect local communities. This has caused me to become deeply passionate about holding elected officials accountable and defending community values.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?

It would be Angela Davis. She wants the prison-industrial complex to be dismantled and reconstructed. Her perspective is incredible, as she fought for systemic change for years as an activist and was able to witness and work in different eras in political history.
