Robyn Gulley founded New Brookwood Labor College in 2018 which uses education to address racial, economic, and social imbalances of power. She has organized for LGBTQIA+ rights, built support for the Minnesota health care expansion, organized with homecare workers, and organized support to defeat a constitutional amendment that would have disenfranchised voters.
Gulley also educates labor Union members and leaders through the Minnesota AFL-CIO. In addition to being an educator, Gulley is working to drive equity and inclusion through local policy; she serves on the West St. Paul City Council and is Co-Chair of Local Progress Minnesota.
Gulley earned a Master’s of Public Policy with concentrations in Global Policy and Human Rights at the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
