Harvard is falling behind in its response to the climate crisis because our governance is not representative of our alumni and student body. We’re changing that. Harvard Forward is a coalition of alumni, students, and faculty aiming to elect recent alumni to the Board of Overseers on a climate platform.  Harvard Forward has written an open letter to the Harvard Community, titled, "TIME TO ESTABLISH HARVARD AS A MORAL LEADER IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE" which you can read here.

Harvard Forward candidates include Portland's own Margaret (Midge) Purce, Harvard 2017.  Click here for a list of candidates

Midge is a professional soccer player for the Portland Thorns of the National Women’s Soccer League and has an AB in Psychology from the College. She serves as an advisor on gender equity and youth education initiatives for Coaches Across Continents, a global non-profit that uses soccer as a tool for the advancement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While at Harvard, Midge led the Varsity Women’s Soccer team to two Ivy championships and became the only person in Ivy League history to win Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year in one season. Off the field, she was part of the Politics of Race and Ethnicity program at the Institute of Politics.


Danielle Strasburger is the Campaign Manager for Harvard Forward. She graduated from the College in 2018, where she served as Winthrop House Committee Chair and President of the Texas Club. Before joining Harvard Forward full-time, Danielle worked for Bluebonnet Data, a non-profit that recruits and trains college students with technical backgrounds to serve as volunteer data analysts on state and local political campaigns.

Nathán Goldberg serves as a strategy and policy advisor for Harvard Forward. At Harvard, he was the captain of the varsity soccer team and was part of the University-wide Title IX Policy Review Committee. He also graduated from the College in 2018, and he works for Bluebonnet Data.
