The Freya Project holds fundraising readings in New York City and Los Angeles. On January 26, 2017 they kicked off our series of monthly fundraisers, created in the wake of the election, that donates money to small organizations located in communities that do not widely embrace the vital work they perform. Every month, five women read personal essays on a theme loosely related to the organization receiving that month's donations. Our readers have included Lena Waithe, Jessica Valenti, Julie Buntin, Lauren Duca, Aparna Nancherla, Lisa Ko, and many more amazing women.
I will be speaking in an open forum about my work with Resistance Manual and Protect Democracy. I will be conducting a workshop on how to find your unique way participate in civic society. The question we will be working to answer is, "What does it mean to speak of effective resistance today?"

I will be participating in MMLafleur's internal speaker series, where they bring professional women into their office to share insights and advice from their personal journeys with their employees. The focus of the night will be my career-defining moments and professional passions, and we will end with a Q&A from MMLafleur's employees. It will be a Q&A format.
I will be moderating a panel drawing on the work from my forthcoming publication, "Accountability in Policing: How Complicity Perpetuates Institutional Injustice and Inequities in the United States and South Africa".

Inspired by Alexander Hamilton’s legacy of leadership through service, AHS empowers high-achieving, underserved youth to succeed in college and career. They strive to close the opportunity gap for Scholars as they transition from high school to college and beyond.
