Do I march? Do I stay home? My mixed feelings on the Women’s March aren’t new and they certainly aren’t a secret. For months now, the March’s leadership has been rocked with valid criticism and outrage over their lack of condemnation (and seeming approval) of antisemitism. As a feminist and activist, as an attendee of […]
I’m certainly a little late in getting this up on my site but it’s important to share nonetheless. Last semester, I was approached by AU’s Project on Civil Discourse to write an article on why our discourse (as a campus, as a community) should be trauma-informed. In truth, I’ve been hesitant to weigh in on […]
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Kimberly Cataudella, a journalism student at AU, about my experiences and choices around attending synagogue every Saturday. Below is the gallery of photos that she took that day, and honestly they are stunning. She did an amazing job, and not just because I […]
Opinion: AU students should participate in the Notice and Comment period for new Title IX guidelines
Notice and Comment for the Proposed Title IX change is open. All students should care. All students should participate. In my latest op-ed for The Eagle, I outline everything you should know. Read it here.
Last month for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wrote a series of op-eds for The Eagle on domestic violence on campus. Covering topics from how to respond to your friends when they tell you they’ve experienced domestic violence, to campus specific-forms of abuse, this series covered a lot of ground. A few weeks later, The […]
Throwback to this important piece by the Alma staff! This post was in direct response to this mess of an article highlighting 12 millennials on why they won’t vote. As you can see, we were having none of it. Check out why I chose to vote here.
For those in the Jewish community, the topic of young membership seems to be a continuous area of conversation. But little of the discourse actually includes millennial voices. Until now, that is. Huge shout-out to Nylah for her amazing work covering this topic. Check out what I have to say here!
I’m so flattered and excited to share this video that my good friend Sasha made of me for her Backpack Video Journalism class. She was tasked with finding someone whom most people wouldn’t expect to be ‘amazing.’ In the video, she asks me about my experiences around protesting and participating in civil disobedience. Check it […]
Today, I had the distinct honor to present a workshop at this year’s WERC (Working to End Rape Culture) Summit at Georgetown. Put on by Georgetown University’s Sexual Assault Peer Educators- SAPEs, this full-day conference centered on sexual violence education and advocacy. Local students, administrators, and community organizations from across the DMV area presented on the […]
Religious liberty is a term that is most often thrown around by right-wing, conservative-leaning Christians in the context of taking away other people’s rights. These rights tend to be what I would consider progressive, the right to love and marry whomever you choose, the right control when and how you start a family, and the […]
