Born in Arizona, Momo Wilms-Crowe is a rising senior at the University of Oregon majoring in Political Science with minors in Ethnic Studies and International Studies. Driven by radical hope and a faith in the potential of liberatory politics, she is passionate about working for social change at all levels. As a scholar, she is especially interested in exploring identity, power, and transformation in a neoliberal context, and is working on a thesis comparing decolonial student movements in South Africa to student mobilizations around #BlackLivesMatter in American universities. Always dedicated to the connection of theory to praxis, Momo is a dedicated member of the activist community. She also interns with the Prison Education Program which provides educational opportunities for students incarcerated in Oregon correctional institutions. After graduating, Momo is considering pursuing a J.D. and working in civil rights law and/or opening a community garden and bakery with her single mom.
