Emma is a proud public school teacher, femme lesbian, intersectional feminist, millennial who has never done anything like this before. Reeling from the devastation of the election results, compounded with a positively spiritual experience at the Women’s March on Washington, Emma woke up with an fierce desperation for both knowledge and action. When a friend suggested, “you should start a feminist book club,” WokeClub was born. Emma loves Harry Potter and hip hop music.
Jessica: Small Meetups Planner and Facilitator
With her roots in studying political science and history, Jess has been interested in how politics shapes people’s lives since her teenage years. Now, as a public school special educator/504 coordinator, Jess is even more motivated to sustain the ‘average’ citizen’s efforts to create a more inclusive and just society. WokeClub was a light in the darkness of the election and an exciting adventure for her to help facilitate change. When she isn’t sucked into the vortex of our current political landscape, she loves playing the mandolin, reading new perspectives, gardening, and dreaming of life on a sailboat 🙂
