InfoZephyr Teachout is an organizer, educator, and scholar. She is a constitutional and property law professor at Fordham LawSchool. She is a deeply experienced leader in the fights for economic and political equality and against concentration of wealth and control in the hands of the few.

Teachout is best known for her efforts to limit the influence of money on politics. Her arguments were cited in the Citizens United case by Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. She is one of the leading legal experts on corruption.

She has worked on political campaigns at every level. She was head of online organizing for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign. After the market crash of 2008, Teachout co-founded a group dedicated to breaking the power of Wall Street banks.

After graduating law school at Duke, Teachout founded a criminal defense non-profit in Durham, NC, where she helped lead the fight against the death penalty. It was during these years Zephyr came to understand that lawmaking is not a science but rather a moral and political art.

Teachout grew up in rural Vermont. But she was born in Seattle and is really a child of America. Her family roots extend to Texas, California, and Washington, and further out to Holland, Ireland, England, and Sweden.

Teachout attended public school in Vermont before going on to Yale. Her first job after Yale was as a special education teacher's aide in a small rural public school.
