I grew up in household with parents dedicated to social justice and human rights. From an early age, I understood it was my responsibility to be a voice for those who are disenfranchised and dehumanized. I am the face of peace.
Though I was always aware and somewhat involved in peace and justice throughout my early years, I was not an active change-maker. It was at the age of 28, after I had my first son, that I felt this terrible sense to move—to work—to do something to make the world better for my child. But who would I help? What global issue was of most importance? I found myself at a standstill; unable to justify one human injustice as worse than another. It was at this time that my mother suggested I take up work with a nonprofit of the consistent life ethic. And so I did.
I am currently the Coordinator for Feminists Choosing Life of New York, a nonpartisan, nonsectarian nonprofit that seeks to return to the grassroots of pro-life feminism. We believe in the ideals of justice, nondiscrimination and nonviolence. We strive to be an active voice for a consistent life ethic through our education, advocacy and outreach efforts.
