I strongly believe in the power of volunteering to make the world a better place. That is why I am an active member of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL). CCL is a national nonprofit organization with local chapters across the country. The group has been the primary catalyst for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763). Today, the bill has 75 members signed on as co-sponsors.
CCL pushes me into new experiences such as meeting with Congressmen in the U.S. House of Representatives to discuss climate change and learning to work across differences of all types of people to achieve a common goal. As of November 2019, I am the New York State Liaison for New York’s 18th congressional district. A lot of my spare time is emailing, calling, and engaging with our local congressional offices.
In addition to volunteering, I also love sharing my passion for art. I am currently collaborating with a local calligrapher to hold tote printing and lettering classes in the Hudson Valley. Nothing brings me more joy than sharing with students how they can make their custom textiles and unleash their artist within!
