Rachel is a visual artist and cultural organizer born and raised in NYC.  As a 4th generation Ashkenazi Jew living in New York City,  Rachel sees herself as living forward the dreams of many generations of radical leftist jews.  As a white organizer in the interlocking struggles against racial, economic and environmental injustice, Rachel aspires to be an accomplice in the dismantling of white supremacy.

For the last number of years, Rachel's work is mostly focused on the critical role artists and creativity play in confronting the climate crisis, but she has also been honored to work alongside artists and activists in the Domestic Worker Justice movement, the Fight for $15 campaign, Occupy Wall Street, and more. 

 Rachel swoons for bright colors, is a lifelong student of flow-chart making, and likes zinnias more than anything else on earth. She is a trainer with Beautiful Trouble and a founding steward of People's Collective Arts, based at the Mayday Community Space in Bushwick, NY. 

Rachel is an experienced facilitator, conflict mediator, community arts production manager, curriculum designer, banner and street action prop fabricator, and complexity-mapper, always looking for new collaborators and interesting gigs- if you've got a project, drop a line!
