Rachel is a justice-minded person, a writer, and believer in, and fighter for, a better world. She graduated from New York University with a degree in Sociology and Child and Adolescent Mental Health, with a focus on researching restorative justice. She believes in the healing power of storytelling and seeks to create a world where every person’s story is uplifted and acknowledged. This belief has carried her in her work in Jewish community spaces through working on a podcast highlighting diverse Jewish stories, in interning with the Tribal Justice Exchange, and in working with people who are currently and formerly incarcerated, through art and ritual. Her own writing has been published in Hey Alma and Ayaskala Magazine and in the printed poetry and prayer collection, Mishkan Ga’avah.
