A native of the UK, Mikey Franklin moved to the US to pursue a life that more closely resembled his favorite Springsteen songs. After working for several electoral campaigns, including the successful fight to defend Marriage Equality in Maryland, Mikey founded the Fair Pay Campaign in 2013. He serves as its Executive Director, and has overseen its growth from an idea scribbled on the back of a diner napkin into a national movement organizing to end unpaid internships. He lives with his wife, a public school teacher, just outside DC.
