Brandon Letsinger (born May 5, 1986) is an organizer, social activist and author known for his work with the Cascadia movement[1], and support for bioregionalismas well as his outspoken stance against white supremacy and fascism[2]. He is the founder of CascadiaNow[3] , the Cascadia Spoke[4], The Cascadia Association Football Federation, Regenerate Cascadia[5], and as of 2023, the director of the Department of Bioregion.

Brandon first became known nationally inside of the United States for his secessionist viewpoints, after he founded the Cascadia Independence Project in 2005, which would later become CascadiaNow! the Cascadian Independence Project. He attended the first convention for North American Secessionist movements, hosted by Kirk Patrick Sale and the Middlebury Institute in Vermont, in 2006. This gathering brought together the representatives from nine separate secessionist organizations[6]. His secessionist viewpoints continued to gain notoriety as Scotland had their first vote for independence in 2014[7][8]. These Cascadia campaigns continued to grow after the election of Donald Trump in 2016, and showed how Cascadia began working with other similar movements, such as Yes California[9][10]. In 2018, he organized and work with the Cascadia Association Football Federation to send a Cascadia soccer team to the CONIFA World Cup in London[11][12][13].
