Bio: 

Jes is a junior philosophy major and women's & gender studies minor at SUNY Geneseo. When she's not thinking about Plato or the metaphysics of gender, she devotes her time to educating others on gender equality, feminism, and Title IX rights as president of Women's Action Coalition (WAC). This summer, she looks forward to completing a RRASC internship at the Center on Reproductive Rights & Justice at UC Berkeley Law. Though Jes' post-baccalaureate plans are unclear, she hopes to bridge the gap between theory and practice to make a difference in the lives of women and LGBTQ+ people.
