Margi Clarke is a Berkeley activist.


"I was raised in Washington D.C. in the late 60’s/early 70’s in my extended family where civil rights marches and peace rallies were regular outings. At age 21, I was lucky to get a paid organizing job in California that led me into a decade and a half working closely with the FMLN and civilian opposition groups in El Salvador -- leading delegations to the war zones, organizing against U.S. military intervention, raising funds and supporting cooperative agriculture throughout Central America. From the early lesson that dissent and solidarity were normal, over time I learned how people’s movements have the power to affect national and international events. My work is guided by those powerful feelings of unity in action, and lessons-learned across generations, across borders and across communities.”
