Last year I completed a M.A. in International Human Rights. I'm interested in the praxis of human rights, the role of social justice movements and the value of tikkun olam to make the world a better place. I am also interested in international development, humanitarian aid, social justice movements, politics, economics, community organizing and the values of deep and direct democracy. As a queer Jew I care about certain issues, but I strive to push discourse and work for real, meaningful, and lasting progressive change.
This blog is a forum for me to discuss my ideas and analysis and share what I do and think about on the issues that matter to me.
