Education Justice

Emmy was an economics major and served as an Advocate at the WATCH CDC Housing Clinic. As an intern for the American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri, she developed a strong passion for issues of economic justice and wealth inequality. Emmy is dedicated to the development of civic engagement and educational initiatives as mechanisms of addressing society’s most pressing socioeconomic disparities. A co-founder of No Labels at Brandeis University, she hopes to expand the civic involvement in fostering dialogue and engagement of students and the community on socioeconomic issues.

BLUEPRINT: Web Development through Reciprocal Learning. Emmy’s Blueprint seeks to address the issues of economic injustice by exposing students in underserved communities to quality STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education, with a focus on the inner-city and immigrant populations. Exposing youth in these communities to web development and coding skills through pair-programming-oriented mentorship by local Computer Science college students, coupled with the development of web applications and browser-based games, Emmys Blueprint develops and inspires the next generation of tech leaders from underrepresented backgrounds by providing them with the resources and mentorship they need to succeed in STEM. Emmys Blueprint also focuses on teaching basic computer and web skills to older folks in the community to bridge the common communication gap between youth and elders. With the investment of Emmys programming, youth in her community will then be able to teach computer and web skill classes to the older generation. Emmy has begun working with local non-profit organizations and public schools in the Boston community and hopes to eventually expand her program nationwide and internationally. Her ultimate vision is for all underrepresented and underserved youth to have the opportunity to create, innovate, and lead in the technology field and to find a creative outlet through technology.
