Jerin Arifa has been an activist since childhood, when she created a literacy program for homeless kids in Bangladesh. In America, Arifa co-created the sexual assault and domestic violence policy for the largest urban public university in the nation. Outside of her feminist job as the Development Officer for the YWCA of the City of New York, Arifa mentors millennials across the country as the Founder and President of the National Organization for Women (NOW) first-ever, virtual chapter called Young Feminists and Allies. Her chapter utilizes digital media to leverage activism on the ground, such as helping Montana NOW bring justice against rape-enabling Judge Todd Baugh. She leads the chapter in hosting national and international webinars to connect activists, most recently hosting a Google Hangout on multicultural realities and responses to street harassment. Arifa’s previous positions at NOW include National Board Member and Chair of the National and New York State Young Feminist Task Forces. The Edna Berger Marks Foundation, Men Can Stop Rape and the Women's Democratic Club of NYC are a few of the organizations that recognized Arifa’s work on behalf of women. Diverse media ranging from National Public Radio to Cosmopolitan Magazine also featured her work. Arifa’s passion for social justice includes volunteering for the American Cancer Society for over a decade, and the Humane Society for years. Arifa and her feminist Alaskan husband love New York City, and take advantage of all it has to offer. Learn more about her at: http://www.linkedin.com/in/jerinarifa
