Gile Beye cut her teeth on activism marching in Washington to protest the Vietnam War with her parents. Since then she has attended many more marches, canvassed for candidates, made constituent phone calls, and licked countless envelopes. She was twice elected to the planning board in her small NH town, and that success convinced her to run for NH state representative. Though her bid was unsuccessful the experience was significant. She continues to sink her teeth into activism any way she can. She lives in Cambridge with her husband and no pets.
