Rethink

In January 2013, I co-founded Rethink, a community outreach program that facilitates discussion workshops with court-involved youth and victims of domestic abuse and sex trafficking. Each workshop centers around a relevant philosophical concept, such as power, authority, punishment, racism, responsibility, equality, democracy, and the idea of a meaningful life. Beginning with four facilitators and one community partner, we now have over 30 facilitators—graduate students from five area universities—and six community partners, and our organization was awarded the 2015 APA/PDC Prize for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs.

In 2013, I co-founded the Columbia chapter of Minorities and Philosophy. MAP aims to address issues of minority participation in academic philosophy. The organization's website can be found here and the Columbia chapter website can be found here.
