advocate for social change



My work focuses on rights consciousness among marginalized communities. I am most interested in how these individuals think about legality in everyday practice against injustice. I draw upon my experience in political organizing and community activism to co-create educational opportunities that provide alternative visions of the future toward more equitable social relations. This research has addressed climate change inaction, systemic racism, reproductive rights and migration. I apply these themes in courses I teach including Constitutional Law, Environmental Law and Politics, and the Judiciary. My publications describe culturally sustaining teaching practices and community-engaged integration of technology. I am available for consulting, program reviews, workshops and public talks.
