Hanging fliers for a film event

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.

It is super encouraging when young people are able to make the decision to DO something instead of waiting for another to do it for them. Congratulations Hannah - I suspect we will be hearing much more from you. Keep it up.
