Former Culver City Mayor Daniel Lee became the first African-American member of the Culver City Council in its over 100-year history. In 2018 he passed rent control, voted to close down the Inglewood oil field, began a reparations process, created a mobile response team and worked to create permanent supportive housing.

Jennie Spanos (she/her) is a Co-Director of Move to Amend. As a journalist, she observed the immense stranglehold corporate power exerts over our government and communities. This experience shaped her perspective and fostered a deep passion and focus in her organizing work on environmental, social and economic justice issues leading her to collaborate with various intersectional grassroots movements building for a just and sustainable future. “The power reaped from the insane notion of corporate constitutional rights exists in tandem with structural oppression, and environmental degradation and is found as a cause of so many injustices.”

Kat Dodds is CEO and founding partner of Cool.World platform, developed to help organize around climate, democracy, and economic and racial justice. Former editor, spoof-ad director, and marketing manager at Adbusters turned Impact Producer in 1999 when she oversaw all marketing for The Corporation (2003) winner of 26 international awards and Canada’s top grossing documentary. She currently manages worldwide distribution rights for The Corporation and Manufacturing Consent, and the non-theatrical rights for The New Corporation (2020).
