Helping Others to have a Voice!
“Mo” George’s organizing/activist experience began in college where she worked locally with the New York Public Interest Research Group as their Campus Leader. Upon graduation, Mo accepted an Organizer position at SEIU Local 1199 in New York, where she worked for 10 years. After leaving 1199, Mo moved on to become the Lead Organizer at the Empire State Pride Agenda, where she fought for the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
At Pride Agenda, Mo led various statewide campaigns, including helping further develop their annual Statewide lobby day, which went from 300 to over 1000 participants during her tenure there. After the passing of the grandmother who raised her, Mo resigned from Pride Agenda and decided to spend some time traveling the world, including time spent in Paris, Italy, and England. Mo recently visited Romania, Hungary, and Slovakia where she selected to continue her activist work during a three-week organizing exchange sponsored by the U.S. State Department.
