Greg Gerritt

Greg Gerritt has been an activist for more than 50 years—ever since organizing his high school for the first Earth Day. Today, he labels himself activist, writer, and forest gnome; he maintains a very active, green public policy portfolio with a focus on creating community prosperity by simultaneously healing ecosystems and channeling economic development resources to under-resourced communities. In 1986, he was the first Green Party candidate for state legislature in the United States. Gerritt has started a local watershed group, administered the coalition of environmental nonprofits in Rhode Island, brought several green industries to the state, and served on a number of nonprofit boards. One of his current projects is a YouTube channel, Moshassuckcritters, for which he has created nearly 2,000 short videos of urban wildlife in Providence, Rhode Island. Read more on his blog!
