Gordon Clark is a citizen-politician – a lifelong activist, advocate and community organizer for peace, social justice and the environment who is now running to make a difference in government. A brief resume of Gordon’s accomplishments includes:

*Graduate of Brown University, 1982, with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology

*Founder, 1984, Doylestown (PA) Peace Force, a community organization combating the nuclear war fighting policies of the Reagan Administration

*Site and Program Manager with the Bucks (County) *Association of Retarded Citizens, 1982-1987, delivering services to the developmentally disabled

*Executive Director of New Jersey Peace Action (formerly Sane/Freeze), 1991-1995

*National Executive Director of Peace Action, the nation’s largest grassroots peace and disarmament organization, 1996 – 2001

*Nonviolence and conflict resolution trainer

*Founder, 2002, Iraq Pledge of Resistance (now the National Campaign for Nonviolent Resistance), a national non-profit network devoted to using the nonviolent methods of Gandhi and King to oppose the war in Iraq; convener, 2002-2007. (Following his most recent arrest for nonviolent protest, Gordon defended himself pro se in U.S. District Court and was acquitted on all charges.)

*Field Director of Public Citizen’s Congress Watch, 2003-2006

*Project Coordinator, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, 2007.

Gordon is proud to serve his community and country. He looks forward to continuing this history of service in the U.S. House of Representatives.

But the changes that are so urgently needed in our nation, and that are outlined in the platform of this campaign, cannot be accomplished solely through the election of one individual to the U.S. Congress, nor even the election of several individuals who share our vision. These changes can only occur when all those who share this vision of a country and a world renewed come together and utilize all the tools at our disposal to make it happen: as citizens, as neighbors, as activists, as purchasing agents and as members of a larger national and global community. When the people lead, the leaders will follow. To find out what you can do to help make this vision a reality, go to our Take Action page.

Gordon is running as a Green, a party whose principles are fundamentally aligned with what most Americans want and believe we need to get our country back on the right track.
