In high school, Dan marched in an anti-war protest on the mall in Washington D.C. It is here—with his grandmother, mother, aunts, uncles and cousins—that Dan first understood the importance and power of protest.
An alumnus of Cleveland State University’s College of Urban Affairs, Dan earned a B.A. in Non-profit Administration, graduating summa cum laude. While interning in the ACLU of Ohio’s development department in 2015, he earned the George S. Dively Prize from CSU for outstanding performance as a community intern. Dan has worn many hats at the ACLU of Ohio, working on print and digital media, web design, messaging, storytelling, and donor relations.
He is dedicated to the mission of the ACLU, and feels that defending civil liberties has no place for partisan politics.
