Meet the New Member of the Health Justice Team!

Please welcome Lindsey Hennawi, the new Program Assistant for the Health Justice and Environmental Justice programs.

Lindsey received her B.A. in International Studies with a focus in human rights from Boston College. As a student, Lindsey was highly involved in promoting health education and literacy, especially in low-income communities of color, where she taught violence prevention and helped increase access to reproductive health information and resources. Since then, Lindsey has worked as a case manager for immigrant families and volunteered to support the rights and health needs of people involved in the sex trade. Lindsey hopes to pursue a career in public health and social work. She is passionate about food, traveling, and social justice, and is excited to join the NYLPI HJ team!
