Building a Democracy Movement

Michael Lynn is a veteran activist in Chicago. He spearheaded two coalition efforts to pass Chicago City Council resolutions. The first campaign was a 2005 effort on a resolution placing the City of Chicago on record urging the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. The second effort was a 2007 resolution that would have placed the city on record as opposing any American military action against Iran. That action was the project of a citywide coalition he helped found, The No War On Iran Coalition. He was also instrumental in organizing opposition to the 2012 NATO meetings held in Chicago, co-authoring an editorial for the Chicago Tribune. He currently sits on the board of Peace Action, the nation’s largest peace and justice organization and is a member of the Chicago chapter of World Beyond War.
