STEVEN MACHAT IS AN ATTORNEY, ENVIRONMENTALIST, AND A TENACIOUS ADVOCATE OF CIVIL RIGHTS AND SOCIAL ACTIVISM.
A graduate of the University of Miami Business School and Vanderbilt University Law School, Steven has been working to protect the rights and freedoms of others for more than four decades. His career began in the Public Defender’s Office, where he provided legal defense for disenfranchised and disadvantaged clients — an experience that gave him his first taste of a legal system that often seemed stacked against the poor, the vulnerable, and impoverished. It was while working as a public defender that Steven made his first move into the political arena, working for Jimmy Carter’s underdog campaign for the presidency.
As a private attorney working in the entertainment industry, Steven specialized in protecting younger, inexperienced artists from being taken advantage of by the unethical, one-sided contracts pushed on them by corporate media giants.
It’s that same dedication to fairness that is at the heart of this campaign. The American people are being hoodwinked by Washington insiders and a crooked establishment that has sold out to the highest bidder. They’ve sold our democracy. Running a campaign without accepting a single penny from corporate special interests was an easy decision to make.
