Garrett is the Online Communications Coordinator for Move to Amend and recent graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where he studied public policy and economics.
Garrett first joined Move To Amend as an intern in Fall 2016 after wanting to work behind-the-scenes of an authentic grassroots organization, especially one seeking to end the absurd legal doctrines of corporate personhood and money as speech which give corporations enormous power over government. During his time as an intern, he worked closely with the Media & Communications Committee and is now taking on a more direct role managing Move to Amend's activities online including the thousands of followers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube.
He hopes to use his enthusiasm for social media and digitial platforms to grow a democracy movement loud enough to drown out the millions of dollars spent to influence our elected officials.

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.

Inspired by these experiences, Saleem was drawn to the work of Move to Amend. He sees ending the excessive influence exercised by corporations in our democracy as crucial to ultimately delivering an equitable and just society.

Shelly Williams has been the Administrative 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.
Shelly can be reached by calling the National Office at 916-318-8040 or by emailing shelly AT movetoamend DOT org.
