Pamela John
Co-Executive Director
Progressive Coders Network
Website


Pamela is Progressive Coders Network's overly emoji-nal cheerleader for progressive causes. Years of legal research and writing did not satisfy her inner Social Justice Warrior, so she quit her day job, snagged a degree in Cultural Anthropology from Smith College and amassed an array of social media skills to raise awareness–and money–for grassroots campaigns. A life-long activist, Pamela co-founded ACA “Obamacare” Success Stories before organizing digital media volunteers to GOTV with the Bernie 2016 Grassroots Digital Media Team. It was while working with Bernie 2016 volunteers that Pamela realized the power to literally propel grassroots movements forward is found at intersection of activism and open source tech. A Managing Partner at Big Amp Media and a contributing writer at The Progressive Army, Pamela enjoys using cutting edge tech and social media practices to inspire even the couchiest of potatoes to rally their revolutionary spirits and engage in “feet on the streets” grassroots activism.
