Sandy Moise is a compassionate educator and environmental advocate who has dedicated an impressive 36 years of her life to empowering others through knowledge and fostering a deeper appreciation for the world around us. Her journey towards making a difference began when she joined the Peace Corps as a volunteer in Dominica, West Indies. Immersed in a new culture and environment, Sandy gained a profound understanding of the importance of community collaboration in addressing societal concerns. Sandy has become a prominent advocate for native plants and the creation of urban habitats that support birds, butterflies, bees, and other wildlife. Recognizing the crucial role these organisms play in maintaining ecological balance, she tirelessly champions their protection and conservation efforts. While she isn’t particularly fond of door-knocking for political campaigns, she volunteers wholeheartedly because she recognizes it is the best way to reach, engage, and educate voters. When she isn’t busy helping a candidate get elected or advocating for an environmental issue, she enjoys hanging out with her two children, Emma and Julian, and swimming with her two yellow labs, Sampson and Noah.

Cristina earned a BA in communications from to Boston College and has worked in marketing for brands like Camel cigarettes, Smirnoff Vodka, and Playboy TV.
I am a storyteller, filmmaker, writer, non profit founder and director in different efforts for the arts, youth mentorship, international relations and climate change mitigation. I am a proud mother.
My career has been dedicated to trying to understand and then show or tell what makes people tick; my films and writing focus on what connects us. Through this career, I have come to think that the things we dream about independently, and communally, are all quite similar. And if our dreams of wellbeing, friendship, love, and contentment are similar, can we not find a common ground and forge some kind of future in which the wellbeing of others is put before our own – often shortsighted – desires? These are my thoughts of a lifetime, tied hand and hand with my political beliefs. I believe that we are all equal and all deserve the same health care, safety, possiblities, opportunities, freedoms and the chance to have our own dreams and to able to accomplish them not only unfettered but with the support of a healthy society. These ideals are what have made me a lifelong Democrat. I aspire to continue telling the stories that exemplify the good will which so firmly binds us; the generous and kind hearts which lead us to help each other unequivocally – each with our own dreams. Through these shared stories, we can be inspired to come together not just to survive our current challenges, but to thrive in freedom with justice.
