Glenn Simpson

Online Advocacy and Development Manager

Glenn helps manage the online tools that contribute to the dialogue among Public Citizen, its members, and the public and that foster engagement in Public Citizen’s work. Before joining the Public Citizen team in June 2009, Glenn served as Communications Associate at Workplace Fairness, shift manager at Cole Hardware, Associate Editor at the Alternative Press Center, apprentice press and bindery operator at Workers Action Press, and in many other positions. He is a lifelong radical, who frequently cut class in high school in the mid-‘80s to attend anti-Apartheid and no-nukes rallies in Washington, D.C., while his friends cut class to smoke marijuana at the lake. His other interests include bicycle commuting, record collecting, Scrabble, Ultimate (though he is more or less retired), and the Washington Capitals, as well as several musical genres as represented by Black Sabbath, Dinosaur Jr, Fred Eaglesmith, Fu Manchu, Joan Jett, Journey, The Meads Of Asphodel, Motörhead, Otis Redding, Seam, Slough Feg, Stiff Little Fingers, and Thin Lizzy.
