Ori Alon is the founder of the Center for Supportive Bureaucracy and the Empowering Clerks Network. As Ori writes, "The Center for Supportive Bureaucracy (CSB) believes that paperwork can heal (some) of human suffering. Too often these conventional pieces of paper leave people feeling disempowered. One bad report card can influence one’s whole life negatively." To turn the concept of paperwork on its head, Ori has created the Refurbished Report Card, the Forgiver's License, the Open Carry Permit for Musical Instruments, and many more documents available to the public. Ori engages with a variety of audiences, recently bringing his paperwork to a Trump rally. Ori is also a writer of short stories and comics.
