Who is Who

The campaign’s international action and strategy is coordinated by a secretariat that is hosted by Democracy Without Borders in Berlin. The secretariat is led by the campaign's co-founder and global coordinator Andreas Bummel. In addition to temporary interns and volunteers, partnering organizations and parliamentarians devote staff or resources to support the secretariat's work. Contact details
