Glenn Cantave
Activist, Founder and CEO of Movers & Shakers

Glenn studied Government with a concentration in International Politics at Wesleyan University. He currently works as a creative consultant at a virtual reality studio. An activist at heart, Glenn was one of Avaaz’s head field organizers for the 2014 People's Climate March. In college he was heavily involved in student government where he headed a team to create a film to promote the Affordable Care Act to local communities and canvassed in the central Connecticut area. Outside of work, Glenn is the Creator and Executive Producer of We the People, a 360 VR docuseries that intends humanize the resistance movement and convey the creative ways in which people are engaging in activism. So far we've had the chance to speak with influential resistors like Faiz Shakir, National Political Director of the ACLU, Todd Stern, Chief negotiator for the United States at the 2015 United Nations Climate Conference, and Steve Lucin, Founder/CEO of the Support Creativity Scholarship (as well as one of his scholarship recipients). We also covered Charlottesville protests and had the pleasure of interviewing Don Gathers, Chair of the Charlottesville Blue Ribbon Commission that decided to remove the confederate statues.
