WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Thursday announced South Carolina State Representative Justin Bamberg will join the organization’s Board of Directors.
“Our board is excited to welcome Justin Bamberg. He has a great record as a movement builder in South Carolina and beyond,” said Our Revolution Board Chair, Larry Cohen. “Justin has a strong record on progressive issues, including economic and racial justice. His history of community organizing, party building, and a proven commitment to building Our Revolution South Carolina will strengthen our board and our engagement in communities across the country.”
Justin Bamberg is a personal injury trial lawyer and has been a Member of the South Carolina House of Representatives for District 90 since 2014.

“I’m proud to be joining Our Revolution Board of Directors,” Bamberg added. “As we saw from Tuesday’s elections, local elections and local groups have the power to change our country for the better. We are building an organization that will lead the charge to bring policies that ensure social, economic, and racial justice to every community. I look forward to working with the board, our local groups, and supporters to make this vision a reality."
