Senior Director, Campaign for the Right to Repair

(857) 413-2534

Started on staff: 2005
B.A., Tufts University

Nathan leads U.S. PIRG’s Right to Repair campaign, working to pass legislation that will prevent companies from blocking consumers’ ability to fix their own electronics. In 2009, while working with the network’s Digital Team, he mobilized so many people to deliver online comments to then-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in opposition to cuts to the state parks budget that they crashed the governor’s email servers. Nathan lives in Arlington, Mass., with his wife and two children.

As a result of a shareholder action by advocacy group As You Sow, Micosoft agreed to release a study of the environmental benefits of expanding access to repair last fall. The report, “Summary of Sustainability Benefits of Microsoft Device Repair,” is now public. The study showed strong environmental reasons to expand repair, inclduing finding that repairing a product instead of replacing it can yield a 92% reduction in waste and climate-harming emissions.
