Political Director

Taryn (she/hers) is an organizer who has worked at the local, state, and national level over the last dozen years on a range of issues from climate justice to the opioid epidemic, the through-line being her commitment to shifting power structures and her love for building community. Taryn believes that all humans, including and often especially white folk, are out here looking for a sense of belonging —something the far-right certainly knows well and exploits. She is as hopeful about a more just and gentle future as she is clear-eyed about the precariousness of our democracy and planet. She’s at her happiest when knocking on doors, puttering around the kitchen, tending to plants, and involved in any kind of group or team-based activity.
