Bio

I’m Peter Schurman, and I was the founding Executive Director at MoveOn.org.

More recently, I directed a campaign to amend the United States constitution to restore American democracy to the people, by overturning the Supreme Court’s decisions in Citizens United v. FEC and Buckley v. Valeo.

I have more than 20 years of experience building organizations that make the world a better place, as well as an MBA from Yale and an BA in History from the University of Pennsylvania.  I was born in Boston, grew up in Portland, Maine, and now live in California.

I have always believed that the time has come for world peace through a single, globally inclusive democracy.  Over time, I’ve watched as we’ve missed one opportunity after another to advance this goal.  And I’ve rarely seen anyone make a serious case for it.

I’ve concluded that this idea needs an advocate.  There’s nothing I believe in more deeply, so I’m taking it on.
