Edgar Franks is the affiliate coordinator for Move to Amend’s Whatcom County chapter in Bellingham, WA. He serves as the Civic Engagement Program Coordinator at Community to Community Development, working to engage supporters and develop a strategy that ensures the needs of our community are represented. Community to Community works on issues of Food Sovereignty through the lens of Farm Workers, with the goal of creating a politically conscious intersectional base that is fighting to end Patriarchy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism through direct actions, policies, and strategic alliances with other popular peoples movements regionally, nationally, and globally. He is also a member of the Canopy Collective, committed to nourishing community power to heal our connections with our cultures, each other, and the earth. Edgar currently represents Community to Community on the National Planning Committee for the US Social Forum and on the Pacific Northwest Social Forum Outreach Work Group.
