SUZIE BAER

Documentarian and Transportation Coordinator

Suzie has been an activist since Reagan was elected and No Nukes was a thing. The rights of Native people have been a passion that led her to make a documentary film about Leonard Peltier. She’s been an anti-death penalty, environmental, and pro-choice activist for decades. In 2016, the backlash against white women who voted for Trump forced her to make a change. The change was to find and follow Black Women's leadership. Tanesha Grant has provided this righteous leadership. Suzie is often found walking with a video camera or driving comrades in her car. She is a single mom living in Manhattan with two kids in college.
