In November 2016, Brezenoff initiated a petition to the members of Electoral College, calling on them to cast votes against Donald Trump. The petition became the largest in history.

A native New Yorker, Brezenoff was the Green Party nominee for United States Congress in California’s 37th district in 2007, and their Southern California Spokesperson from 2008-2009. He was later Vice President for Programs for the Long Beach Democratic Club. Brezenoff has spent several years as a political staffer in Long Beach, CA, where he also maintains a private therapy practice. He is an alumnus of the University of North Carolina School of Social Work, and the University at Albany, State University of New York, where he studied American History.
