Fiancee Challenged Me to Join Yang Gang
| I was living 300 miles from my fiancee while becoming increasingly frustrated with what I thought was my “dream job”. Needing to clear my head after work, I took my bike for a spin as motorcycling was always a natural release for me. |
| It was a normal ride until until it wasn’t. A silver Chrysler sedan in the opposing lane turned in front of me and stopped.|
| I was frustrated, in pain, and missed my partner and best friend. So I left my job, packed up the car and found a place for both of us in Detroit where we celebrated our first Christmas in the same house.|
We awoke to find my car had been stolen. The police notified us it had been totaled and towed. Maybe some people aren’t meant to have vehicles?
Limited mobility lead to unexpected free time which I spent catching up on podcasts — a friend recommended the Andrew Yang episode of Freakonomics Radio. I was shocked by the common-sense and impactful solutions presented and full #YangGang within the hour.
| My fiancee suggested I get involved with the Yang Gang IRL instead of just online. Starting as a Yang Gang Primary Contact in Detroit, we began preparing for the July debate. I took on the additional responsibility as a Regional Organizer for Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. Eventually creating the Yang Gang Operations Team along with Quintus Jett and Rondi Frisch.|
| Our team had grown close over the summer and ultimately realized we could be more effective outside campaign headquarters.|
In October, we founded Abundance For America.
Our mission is to empower Yang supporters with the strategy, materials and knowledge required to grow support for Yang’s vision. We have completed Treasure Maps for each state and are currently fundraising to distribute supplies alongside the maps.
| I’m voting for Andrew Yang and I hope you will join me in empowering the Yang Gang nationwide.|
Co-Founder, Abundance for America
We believe materials and strategy in the hands of Yang supporters are the Freedom Dividend of political activism.
The mission of Abundance for America is to give every Yang supporter the tools they need to grow the Yang Gang.
WHO WE ARE
Abundance for America was founded by three early adopters of Yang’s vision who recognized the disconnect between the enthusiasm of the Yang Gang and their access to supplies, strategy, and knowledge.
