About Us

The idea behind Social Advance was proposed by Alan Zundel, and five founding members adopted a constitution on Oct. 30, 2018. We are based in Lane County, Oregon.

The initial Board of Directors is composed of:

Alan Zundel, Executive Director and Board Treasurer. Alan is a former political scientist and longtime political activist in issues of economic inequality and electoral reform.

Kris McAlister, Board President. A resident of Springfield, Kris uses his experience and interests to help the greater community on issues surrounding poverty, homelessness, and health care access.

Charles Dunaway, Board Secretary. After a career in IT, Charles is now Producer and Host of a radio show and podcast called Wider View that focuses on international news.

We will soon begin accepting members; if you are interested please contact us. A membership meeting will likely be held in the spring of 2019.
