Frank is the Regional Program Manager for the BlueGreen Alliance. Since joining the BlueGreen Alliance in 2018, Frank has been a leader in BlueGreen Alliance’s work to address climate change, protect strong fuel economy standards, promote electric vehicle and good manufacturing jobs as well as encourage investing in good jobs and fair economic policies as part of a just transition for workers and communities as we move to a cleaner economy. Frank was also recently appointed to Governor Whitmer’s Environmental Justice Advisory Council.

Frank began his activism as an 18-year-old City Councilman in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Throughout his career he has been a champion in promoting fairness in the economy—most notably, for leading multiple successful campaigns to raise the minimum wage—which is how he met his wife Danielle Atkinson.

Frank and Danielle live in Royal Oak, Michigan where they continue to fight for economic, racial and social justice with their six children. He received his B.S. from Eastern Michigan University in Political Science and History with a Secondary Education Curriculum.
