Dr. Christopher Rake
Dr. Rake is a Southern California native who went UC San Diego for his undergraduate work and Tufts University for Medical School; there he graduated in the top 10% of his medical school class with the distinction of Alpha Omega Alpha. He then did residency at UCLA in Anesthesiology and has been an attending anesthesiologist there since 2009. When the state-mandated Covid injections for all healthcare workers, he sprang into action and founded CUFF, or Citizens United For Freedom. Comprised of over 1,000 citizens from many walks of life, CUFF advocates civil disobedience and united non-compliance in the face of tyranny. Dr. Rake made national and international headlines last month for a viral video he shot of himself being walked off the campus of UCLA because of his unvaccinated status. He believes we will not get out of this current political & cultural crisis by filling out exemption forms or any other means which legitimize a broken, illegal, and corrupt system. He is a strong advocate for freedom, advancing the idea that the only way back to freedom is a hard and probably long fight that we must be prepared to wage.
