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!
