Dan is our Political Coordinator. In this role, he acts as For the Many’s liaison with our allies in office and in other organizations. He also fills in when needed as an emcee, press contact, and comic relief.
Dan grew up the son of a working class single mom who immigrated from the Philippines. He got a job at 15 years old to help her pay the bills. At points in his life he’s struggled with lack of healthcare, homelessness, and the crushing cost of college. He was inspired to join the fight for systematic change when he heard about the Bernie 2016 campaign.
Dan is driven by a determination to make sure that future families don’t have to suffer the way his family did. As Political Coordinator, he helps push forward transformative bills that will improve the lives of millions of people.When he’s not politically coordinating (to the extreme!) he is watching The Simpsons while reading the news.
