Reflecting on Platform’s Platform

Some of my favorite things in this world are, in no particular order, grassroots organizing, feminism, and badass women. Getting the opportunity attend Platform’s convention, which strategically combines all three of those things, felt like a dream come true. Unfortunately, I had to miss the first of three days, as I was scheduled to work […]

On the frontlines to #SaveSCOTUS

Last night, hundreds of people worried about the prospect of an ill-suited, backward-thinking Supreme Court justice. I am proud to have been able to participate in the demonstration and stand next to some of the most important voices of our time while they responded to the nomination and discuss what happens next. Check out clips […]

Protest is patriotic. Here’s how to do it.

I believe that protest and dissent is a fundamental patriotic value. And I take these values seriously enough to act on them frequently. My roommate noticed my protest kit I made in my apartment, and after laughing at me for an appropriate amount of time, encouraged me to explain what was in it and how […]

Press Clip: “Trump’s Immigration Policies Unified People of Many Faiths in a Powerful Protest on Capitol Hill Today”

The past few days have been a whirlwind of protests, tears, and writing around the administration’s cruel and inhumane policies at the border. I have been overwhelmed and saddened by the news that has been slowly trickling out from the detention centers and the border and have felt, like hundreds of others, to show up […]

We are all responsible for our own theology.

I have been thinking a lot lately of theology. With our administration using bastardized New Testament scripture as justification for their horrific and inhumane policies, I hurt. I hurt not only as a moral human being but as a Jew. Theology has been the justification for countless atrocities throughout the world’s history. The scripture that […]

A Bill to Condemn Antisemitism

After weeks of organizing, hundreds of emails, hours and hours and hours of work, my semester finally feels complete. But not because my classes have ended or my finals are done. Because my bill has finally passed through the Undergraduate Senate. I knew I would be creating this bill early on, only a few days […]

Press Clip: “Jewish prayer draws more than 100 attendees after ‘difficult week’ for community”

The past few weeks have been incredibly painful for the Jewish community, with the recent spate of antisemitism happening at George Washington University. In summary, a few years back an undergraduate senator made virulently antisemitic comments regarding the Jewish Student Association and GW Hillel. Then, this senator (after being allowed to remain in his position) […]

Press Clip: Anti-Semitic Flyers Depicting A Parkland Student Found On College Campus

A few weeks ago, I was approached by a reporter for Refinery29, Natalie Gontcharova, about a second antisemitic postering incident that took place on my campus.  I am very excited as she featured my website and the curriculum I’ve created around antisemitism on college campuses. Read the full story here.

Press Clip: Protesting one way of giving voice to issues

Almost 4 months ago, I was interviewed about the rise of protesting happening across the country in response to this administration’s policies. Black hopes to see consolidation in these movements, so they can institute and create real change, “I think there should be more looking outwards, at who is fighting alongside of you and not […]

Curriculum: A Dialogue on Antisemitism

Background: Antisemitism is a growing phenomenon across the United States and Europe and college campuses are particularly vulnerable. But, strangely, there aren’t a lot of resources to teach this complex form of oppression at an age-appropriate level for college students. This is an attempt to bridge that gap. Goals: To understand the history of antisemitism and […]
