Aubree is a second-year MSW student studying Social Policy & Evaluation and concentrating in communities and social systems. She recently graduated with Honors from the University of Michigan with a BA in Women's Studies and Psychology and a minor in the Community Action and Social Change program. Aubree's passion for the intersection of gender-based identity and Judaism stems from intergroup outreach efforts. In particular, engaging in dialogue work through positions at the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, as a research assistant for the Program on Intergroup Relations' Arab-Jewish Dialogue course, and as a fellow for the Shoulder-to-Shoulder emerging interfaith leaders program, has shaped Aubree's vision for the future of progressive Jewish organizing. Aubree has worked extensively with LGBTQ organizations and campus advisory boards, and has held three separate policy and program evaluation field placements at the local and national level. Through JCLP, Aubree hopes to bridge her passions for creative outreach and community growth.
