Peace Action Wisconsin Staff
- Jeffrey Kroll — Operations Director
I’m Jeffrey Kroll, Peace Action WI’s new Operations Director. I’m an educator and activist who teaches social science courses at some local colleges, and who has worked for a few other great social justice non-profits around Milwaukee. I currently live in my native Wauwatosa with my wife, Angelique, and our puggle. In my spare time, I like to practice yoga and play the occasional video game.
I look forward to getting to know you as we work together to make the world a better place.
I hope you’ll stop by the Peace Action Center to say hello!
- Mitch Sandquist — Program Director
I’m Mitch Sandquist and I’m the program director here at Peace Action. I’ve met many of you before but for those I haven’t yet had the pleasure, here’s a little about me. I grew up in Wausau, WI, about a three hour drive towards the center of the state. I moved to Milwaukee in 2007 to attend UWM. It was there that I got involved in political activism. I joined up with the Latin American Solidarity Committee and help found a student organization called Progressive Students of Milwaukee. I graduated in 2012 in political science and economics.
I knew I possessed the skills and the passion to succeed as an organizer but, no longer being involved with the student groups, I was looking for the right place to commit my efforts. Thankfully, Peace Action presented me with that opportunity. Working closely with Peace Action throughout my entire student activist career, I learned a lot about organizing and the Milwaukee community. I have always had the utmost respect for the organization’s dedication to fighting for social justice.
I feel blessed to now find myself in this position and I look forward to building upon former program director Mike Helbick’s great work.
Thank you for welcoming me into the Peace Action family.
