Brooke joined Common Cause in March 2009 as the West Coast Development Coordinator based in Los Angeles. Brooke works to coordinate fundraising efforts and identify potential donors and new sources of funding.
Prior to joining Common Cause Brooke worked for a Los Angeles-based political activist raising funds for candidates running for office. This experience provided her with a unique perspective on the issue of money in politics as she saw firsthand just how much time members of Congress spend fundraising instead of working to solve the country’s problems.
Brooke holds a bachelor’s degree in English and Comparative Literature from Occidental College.
