The Incorruptibles are a new kind of volunteer organization
We believe the progressive movement will only succeed if we incorporate the unique skills and perspectives of thousands of volunteers. We call this Radical Creative Diversity, and we live up to this belief with every new opportunity our volunteers come to us with.
Our core team is dedicated to training grassroots organizers, educating the 99% on runaway inequality, filling local government with true representatives of the people, and a strategy to take back all levels of government.
We are always looking for new volunteers. Sign up to get involved.

Anna quit her career as a software developer in order to become a full-time volunteer for the Bernie campaign. In addition to devoting herself to Bernie’s political revolution, Anna volunteered for Brand New Congress and helped mobilize volunteers for local candidates and for Berkeley’s public-financing ballot measure.
Anna continues to volunteer for Our Revolution and Indivisible, but she believes that to effectively battle against the 1%, it is vital to have a truly organic national movement that can develop a deep bench of politicians at the local, state and national levels.
Anna is excited about co-creating an organization that can use the strengths and experiences of every volunteer to take on the 1%.

We must act, understand the truth, and train candidates to be incorruptible. It took work to form the corrupt system we have today; it will take work to dismantle this system and forge trustworthy leaders who represent the 99%. We can do it, together.
Liz worked for 17 years in education, psychology and human services. Simultaneously for much of that time, she was an events organizer in Boston. Liz is excited to lend her strengths to this vital movement.

Norm is the elder(ly) statesman of the team. He cut his political teeth with S.D.S. in the ’60s. And although he never wavered in his radicalism, for various personal and political reasons, he put his activism on hold for much of his adult life. He is an ex-academic, an ex-petit bourgeois businessman, an ex-short order cook and a die-hard Giants fan. Now mostly retired, and faced with the continuing rise in income inequality, racism and the misguided foreign policy that are the hallmarks and the logical outcome of the Reagan revolution, Norm has resumed his activism by volunteering with Indivisible, Jewish Voice for Peace and – especially – The Incorruptibles. He sees The Incorruptibles’ agenda as perhaps the most hopeful road to achieve a radical transformation of society.

Len has had a lifelong passion for equality and social justice. His father, Harry Shaffer (nee Hans Schaffer), a 1938 refugee from Vienna, Austria, was a civil-rights leader and antiwar activist in Lawrence, Kansas in the ‘60s, and Len was raised with those same values. He has volunteered for various candidates and causes throughout the years, and in 2010 he produced, directed and starred in “One Voice for Marriage Equality,” which raised money for the fight for marriage equality in the U.S. and to fight for LGBT rights internationally.
Len is excited to be a part of The Incorruptibles and believes that they have the best model for making an impact on both a short-term and long-term basis.
