Alfonso Saldaña, Online Communications Coordinator
After serving as an intern for a few cycles, Alfonso Saldaña is now the Online Communications Coordinator.
Alfonso is a former student from the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley where he earned a degree in English concentrating in creative writing with a minor in literature. In consequence of reading about the corrosive implications that come with wealth accumulation throughout the ages, Alfonso is now together with Move to Amend on a mission to get money out of politics and end corporate constitutional rights.
When not fighting evil conglomerates, he enjoys reading and writing horror and dystopian stories, taking long walks in the enchanting woods of central Pennsylvania with his partner, and trying new vegan recipes.

Kaitlin believes in a diversity of tactics to bring about systemic social change.

Millicent Harmon, Outreach Coordinator
Millicent (Milly) Harmon served as an intern and an affiliate organizer with Mendocino County Move to Amend before joining the national team as Student Outreach Coordinator. She currently serves as the Outreach Coordinator.
Milly grew up in rural Arizona, where she began engaging in anti-bias education in high school. A heightened awareness of the ever-prevalent prejudices and inequalities surrounding issues such as race, sex, religion, nationality, and wealth, propelled her into activism.
After moving to Northern California, she joined the Occupy movement and got involved in local environmental justice issues. Most recently she worked to pass Measure S, a community Rights initiative to ban fracking in Mendocino County.
Milly joined Move to Amend because she believes corporate personhood to be a major factor behind the social political and environmental injustices she works to overcome.
Shelly Williams, Operations Coordinator
Shelly Williams has been the Operations Coordinator for Move to Amend since April of 2015, and works out of the national office in Sacramento, CA.
She spent her early adulthood years in the service industry, bartending, waiting tables and working customer service, before deciding at age 29 to seek a degree in social work. She graduated top of her class from Indiana University School of Social Work at 34, worked as a case manager for pregnant and parenting teens during her sophomore and junior year, and worked a paid senior year practicum with an organization that helped create permanant supportive housing for people experiencing chronic homelessness.
Her working class background, time spent in university and in the nonprofit industrial complex, helped her see that we are all fighting for the same small pile of scraps - and our work as helpers is too often akin to put bandaids on cancer. This, of course, depressed her very much - existential crisis style.
Then she saw an ad for this position, in the Middle-of-Nowhere CA, to help this movement against corporate rule and money in politics, striking the root of what stands between us and everything we care about - environmental, social, racial, gender and economic justice. So she waddled in with her big pregnant belly, and the rest is history.
Shelly is known as "Mama" to a rad toddler, and two sweet cats.
