Senior Regional Field Organizer
Department: Blog AuthorField
Karl Bach is a Senior Regional Field Organizer, and over the last 5 years he has been a part of grassroots lobbying efforts and ballot campaigns in 18 states. In 2010, Bach helped to secure Senate votes to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in North Dakota, South Dakota, Massachusetts, Florida and Nebraska. Bach’s team in Nebraska identified and mobilized hundreds of Nebraskan veterans (gay and straight), and thousands of Nebraskans across the state. Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson issued his pro-equality statement the day before a critical vote in the Senate Armed Services Committee. In fact, Senator Nelson’s staff commented that it was HRC’s field effort that helped make it possible for the Senator to vote yes. That same year, Bach was named “Organizer of the Year” by Grassroots Solutions, a national grassroots training organization, for his work on DADT, in Delaware working with the Coons for Senate campaign, and other state legislative campaigns.
