Director of External Affairs
Renaldo Michael Pearson joins forces with RepresentUs after leading Democracy Spring from protest (#FixDemocracyFirst) to legislation (#HR1). In 2018, at the inaugural Unrig the System Summit, he introduced “The 7 Deadly Sins of American Democracy” as a new framework for our movement — which global think tank and government corruption watchdog Transparency International has since credited for becoming “a touchstone for thousands of anti-corruption and pro-democracy activists around the country.” Prior to leading Democracy Spring, he served as the youngest college administrator and Social Engineer-in-Residence at Harvard University. Born in DC, Renaldo received his BA in Political Science from Morehouse College and now serves on the boards of Voter Choice Massachusetts, Free Speech TV, and SMART Elections. He is featured in award-winning filmmaker Josh Tickell’s new book and film, The Revolution Generation: How Millennials Can Save America and the World (Before It’s Too Late).
