B. Loewe is the director of On Point Studios, a virtual events and creative interventions shop that partners with social movement organizations to blend campaign strategy, story-telling, and digital mediums to make change. Most recently, B. served as the Deputy Director of Distributed Organizing for The Frontline, a campaign of the Working Families Party and the Movement for Black Lives. B. came into movement as a teen in the Maryland suburbs of DC when his older sister was politicized by meeting survivors of torture at the hands of the graduates of the US Government’s School of Americas. Reading Howard Zinn at age 15 and learning “you can’t be neutral on a moving train,” hearing Archbishop Oscar Romero name “it is unjust to have more than you need when others have not enough,” and resonating with Che’s message that a revolutionary is motivated by love were world reshaping moments that reset the course of the past twenty+ years of his life.
B. came of age in the anti-globalization movement of the early 2000’s and the Cincinnati rebellion that took place after police there killed 19 year old Timothy Thomas in 2001. From 2003 to 2009, B organized with the Latino Union of Chicago. He first began supporting Puente in Arizona as the national organizer for the 2009 march against Arpaio and as a coordinator of the 2010 Summer of Human Rights after the passage of SB1070. He served as a national organizer for the US Social Forum in 2010. Then, as Communications Director for the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, he spearheaded online/offline and distributed strategies with the #Not1More Deportation campaign. In 2015, B was one of the co-founders of Mijente and served as its communications director until 2017, leading communications for the Bazta Arpaio campaign and helping seed the new political home. Since then he has helped launch a national network of asylum sponsors in collaboration with SURJ and NDWA in response to Trump’s xenophobia, collaborated with New Florida Majority to support the Andrew Gillum 2018 governors race in Florida, supported the Working Families United coalition of unions to pass the Dream and Promise Act of 2019, and served as the campaign designer of #UUtheVote, the 2020 Unitarian Universalist voter engagement program.
