Sylvie was a board member at the Edmonia Lewis Center for Women and Trans*people, a student-run center at Oberlin College dedicated to anti-oppression work from a multi-issue standpoint. She has focused on cultivating a community of politicized disabled students on campus. She co-founded and led a peer support group for disabled and/or chronically ill students who see collective healing as a radical response to an ableist society that attempts to isolate them. She was also involved with anti-prison organizing in North East Ohio.
