"I’m here because the planet is hurting and it’s avoidable. It’s the result of greed. I worked for Obama in both campaigns. I’m an empath and I read energy – I think the president’s a pawn and that the people around him are corrupt. I always feel optimistic, in spite of the reality we’re facing. We can’t beat the Koch brothers with money. What we can beat them with is sheer numbers of aware people."
