Environment & Civil Rights
Brooke was raised in the suburbs of Detroit, MI and moved to Los Angeles in 2005 for her film career. Growing up near Detroit and living in LA, she has been fortunate to form deep friendships with people of many different backgrounds, and to learn things from them she could not have learned through her own experiences. She recently went back to school to pursue a law degree, in order to have a stronger foundation upon which she can support and represent the needs and concerns of her fellow citizens. Her interest in film came from its ability to make people look at the world from different perspectives, and inspire them to be better. Her decision to pursue politics more fully came from that same desire to impact people in a meaningful way and seeing more and more women move into the foreground of political conversation. Representation matters!
WHAT MATTERS TO ME:
I am incredibly passionate about so many different issues, that some days it can feel pretty overwhelming. I’m sure many of you feel the same. However, the issues that matter most to me are environmental conservation and protection, and civil rights. I feel that in order to improve anything about this country, we must first take care of each other. I have seen this on a smaller scale through my own family, chosen family, and friends. When we take care of each other, we all rise together. I also feel that nothing else we concern ourselves with will matter if we do not have a planet to live on, or healthy ecosystems to live within. The decisions we make as human beings affect all living beings on this planet, even into the reaches of space as we continue to explore beyond our little blue dot. We cannot take that responsibility lightly.
