Biography

Nolan Pack is the Director of Development at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. With roots in activist spaces and coalition organizing, Nolan approaches development work as a movement building tool that - when centered on the needs and experiences of impacted communities - can be a powerful catalyst for social change. Nolan's organizing work spans more than a decade, with campaigns for environmental justice and the protection of indigenous land, access to driver's licenses for undocumented Californians, protections for queer and trans students, statewide sentencing reform, and the first ever campaign to successfully defeat a cruel anti-homeless "sit/lie ordinance" on a local ballot. Nolan now works with the Ella Baker Center to shift resources away from police, prisons, and punishment - and toward solutions that advance racial, economic, and gender justice. Nolan is a queer, neurodivergent, second-generation Cuban American.
