Rachel (she/they) is a student of social & racial justice who resides in Kingston, New York. Rachel has lived in the Hudson Valley for over 30 years, and is currently organizing alongside the Rise Up Kingston Abundance Circle as the Abundance Circle Anchor. As a person of color, immigrant, and transracial adoptee, they are invested in self and community healing through transformative justice and applied yoga philosophy. They bring a grassroots approach to fundraising and resource building, and are working towards a world where everyone has their needs met through grassroots collaboration.
When Rachel isn’t busy thinking of ways to radically reimagine our financial systems, you can most likely find her practicing asana with her toddler or building community at Sassafras Mercantile. Rachel, her partner and their kiddo live with a variety of furry, scaly, and feathered friends, who they consider family. If Rachel and Lu look familiar to you, it’s probably because they have introduced themselves to your dog.
