Meet the Staff at Metro Justice!

Mohini Sharma

Lead Organizer
(585) 397-3534
[email protected]

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 climate and energy justice, universal health care, and solidarity with local labor unions and community organizations. 

Jay Rowe

Office Manager

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.  


Deb McKinzie 

Manager of Membership Giving
[email protected]

Deb was born in Kansas, but grew up in Rochester, NY. She later moved to Southern California, where she lived for 15 years and started a Montessori School, before returning to Rochester. Deb has over 20 years of experience fundraising for colleges in the area, and is happy to be working for an organization that can bring real change to her home town.

Metro Justice is thrilled to have her expertise to grow our membership so that we can continue to build bold mass movements for a more just and prosperous world.

    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.

    If someone can please have them reach out to me that would be awesome.
    MY name is Michelle Metallo and they can email me at [email protected]
