A number of non-profit, educational and progressive institutions as a teacher, video producer, office administrator or communications specialist:
Chica Luna Productions, a non-profit, founded in 2001, that supports and develops women of color who use popular media to engage social justice themes and are accountable to their communities.

The Brooklyn College Community Partnership, a creative learning network linking the college to the communities of Brooklyn.
College Summit, another organization that partners with schools and districts to strengthen college-going culture and increase college enrollment rates, so that all students graduate career and college-ready.
I have trained with Community Word Project, a New York City based arts-in-education organization that seeks to increase the literacy and leadership of at-risk public school youth by integrating creative expression and community-building into their classroom curricula.
The National Urban Research Group, a Brooklyn non-profit that conducted statistical research that demonstrated the extent of predatory and subprime mortgage lending in central Brooklyn.

The Maneater, the official student newspaper of the University of Missouri.
