David Babbs

David is the founder and Executive Director of 38 Degrees. He works with other groups, charities and individuals to build our people powered movement. Sometimes he talks about our campaigns on the TV and radio. David makes sure that our campaigns are led by our members and achieve real impact.

David has been obsessed with people power ever since the Iraq war in 2003. He went on the big march against the war, and hated it when the people who’d told him it wouldn’t make a difference were proved right. He’s been interested in ways of making people power count more ever since .

David grew up in Leicester, and now lives in East London. Outside work, he volunteers on a community project near where he lives and likes cycling, gardening and cooking.
