Best Activist (Individual or Group)

Luis Rodriguez

Staff Pick

Grant Baldwin

When he isn't involved in a protest, Luis Rodriguez is working behind the scenes to facilitate more of them. The Action NC organizer started his career as a foreclosure counselor, which often put him between big banks and their customers. He literally saw the foreclosure crisis unravel. Now, he protests big banks. He also helps low-income residents secure safe, affordable housing, and earlier this year he organized a counter-protest at a KKK Rally in Harmony. Not only that, but he finds time to occasionally sing with the choir at his church, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte. With everything Rodriguez has a hand in, we wonder how he finds time to sleep.
