Mohini joined Metro Justice as staff in March 2017 after engaging in the Fight for $15 and a Union as a volunteer. She is a native of Rochester and graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a degree in Human Development and Sociology, with a minor in dance. Her experiences bartending and serving tables, as well as struggling with poverty while being a full time student, drive her dedication to build intersectional worker movements. After being the Rochester organizer for the NYS One Fair Campaign for tipped workers, Mohini is now leading several campaigns within Metro Justice. She is currently the primary staff person supporting Metro Justice's efforts around criminal justice, universal healthcare, and Rochester City School District student organizing with other coalition partners.

Jay@MetroJustice.org

Jay first became a Metro Justice member back in 2006, mostly out of a burgeoning curiosity about local progressive movements.  Within a couple of years he was becoming heavily involved with local environmental and community development causes.  In early 2015 he was hired as the part-time Metro Justice bookkeeper, and two years later moved up to the position of full-time office manager.  When he’s not working he’s most likely hanging out with his 3 amazing kids.

    Hi, I was at the Rally last week at the school board and wanted to touch base with the two girls that were volunteering there that live in Gates, NY.
