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).

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’ve coordinated the awarding of a scholarship prize for women in science, facilitated an implicit bias workshop and panel, and moderated a facebook community of more than 6,600 hoosiers. I also run the WMWIN twitter account (more than 1,300 followers).

Last January, 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.

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