Mohini joined Metro Justice as staff in March 2017 after engaging in the Fight for $15 and a Union as a volunteer and food service worker. She is a native of Rochester. Her experiences bartending and serving tables, as well as struggling with poverty while being a full time student, drive her dedication to build intersectional working class 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. In her spare time, she trains in mixed martial arts, is an avid hiker, and grows hot peppers with her partner to make their own hot sauces.
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.
