For more than twenty-five years Alexa Bradley
has dedicated herself to advancing social movements through community action as an organizer, facilitator, and popular educator.
She has been a consultant to many social change organizations, a senior partner at Grassroots Policy Project, a co-director of the Minnesota Alliance for Progressive Action, and a Bush Leadership Fellow.
Today, Bradley brings her experience and passion for social change to On the Commons, where she serves as a program director and works to support community solutions rooted in the commons principles of stewardship and equity.
primary focus since 2010 has been the Great Lakes Commons
Initiative, a grassroots effort unlike any other she
has previously been involved with: "I've done this kind of work for roughly 25 years, and the power of the Great Lakes to tap people's passion is just amazing," says Bradley
Led by a growing network of leaders throughout the region, the cross-border, grassroots effort aims to establish the Great Lakes as a commons and legally protected bioregion.
