Tarchithaa (she/her), John Jay Senior High School ’20, Fordham ’24 – Student Organizing Intern
As someone who found organizing people in my home of Dutchess County seemingly impossible in the wake of a pandemic, For The Many gave me the opportunity to visualize a future for us all and actively participate in empathy-driven work. Surrounded by people motivated by ideals of securing human rights for every dividend of personhood you could think of, from the youth to the elderly — for the many, if you will — the power that is held by the masses has come into fruition or rather recognition to me. Constant support by my peers here has allowed me to be a better communicator towards the community around me and to work towards changes that are for the people and by the people.The guidance from every person I have engaged with since I began here in early 2021 has made my every action more deliberate. I leave you with a reminder that people’s power will always stand strong in truth, even when momentum seems lost.
