What did Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ) need?

Rachel helped Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ) * A social media plan to help it develop a presence in the digital sphere through social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and others.

Why is this project important?

Communities United for Restorative Youth Justice (CURYJ [pronounced "courage"]) was founded two years ago and is aiming to decrease levels of youth crime, racial profiling, and mass incarceration through restorative justice. The best way to do that is to have maximum communication and outreach to our audience and youth by social media planning.

This project will save us $6,632, allowing us to motivate and empower 1000 of young people who have been impacted directly and indirectly by the criminal justice system.

I've been an advocacy and community outreach consultant since 2013. I earned my Bachelors in History from SUNY Stony Brook University and my Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University, School of Social Work. I have been a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York State since 2008.

Over the years I have worked in a number of areas including domestic violence and LGBT rights. In 2012 I founded The Political Social Worker, a blog dedicated to community practice social work and politics. I have presented at UConn's NAHIPSW Campaign School where I lectured on the role of social media in political campaigns. I have also presented workshops on being a political social worker at SUNY Stony Brooks School of Social Welfare's Advocacy Day. I am one of the founders of the #MacroSW Twitter chats and a member of the Association for Community Organization and Social Administration's (ACOSA) communications team; in 2015 I was appointed to ACOSA's Board.

I began my consultancy practice in 2013. I provide consultation to social good organizations and private practices on a number of issues related to advocacy and community outreach, including the use of social media as a community organizing tool. In addition to my consultancy work with organizations, I offer career coaching and training to macro social workers.

I am currently an instructor at SUNY Stony Brook University - School of Social Welfare where I teach Advanced Social Work Macro Practice.
