Rachel (she/her) is a queer, Floridian, Haitian-American abolitionist feminist who has worked for over two decades supporting survivors of domestic and sexual violence both within and outside of social service agencies. Rachel's movement work focuses on supporting survivors criminalized for defending themselves against gender based and / or state violence. She also supports practitioners building responses to gender-based violence that do not rely on existing criminal legal systems and social services that are rooted in carceral feminism. Rachel loves radical nuns, watching television, eating for pleasure, and caring for hard-shelled cold blooded creatures. She lives in Chicago.
