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 worker movements. Thus, she is excited to be organizing full service restaurant workers with Metro Justice as a part of the Fight for $15 and a Union!

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.
