Community Activism

I serve as a member of the Board of Directors and as the Media & Communication Director for Women’s March on Washington – Indiana (WMWIN). In November 2018, I was appointed Chair of our organization.


WMWIN is a non-profit that connects community organizers throughout the state to encourage progressive politics on social and legislative issues.

In this capacity, I have coordinated the awarding of a scholarship prize for women in science (two years running), hosted a community meeting with organizers from across the state, facilitated an implicit bias workshop and panel, coordinated a voter registration drive at the largest drug rehabilitation center for women in Indiana, and moderated a facebook community of more than 6,500 hoosiers. I also run the WMWIN twitter account (more than 1,500 followers).

In January 2018, I chaired the Communications Committee for the Women’s March anniversary event in Indianapolis — Reclaiming Our State: Power to the Polls. Check out my Fox59 interview here, and other coverage in the Indy Star, WTHR, WFYI, and our local NPR affiliate, WFIU.

In July 2018, I participated in the largest women’s act of civil disobedience in our nation’s history in protest of family separation and family detention.

In October 2018, I protested the Kavanaugh confirmation from the steps of the Capitol Building, where I was captured briefly on NBC, CNN, and MSNBC.

With NOW, I contact political representatives to advocate for these issues, and manage the Monroe County NOW’s twitter and  facebook accounts.

I have also participated in community projects with Bloomington Black Lives Matter and Hoosier Action, attending local city council meetings and participating in voter registration initiatives.

On Election Day 2018, I served as a Clerk for Monroe County, where I worked the polls, providing ballots to registered voters.
