Jasmine Leeward

Jasmine Leeward is a communications strategist committed to the delicate work of culture shifting towards Black and Brown liberation, particularly in the US south. She currently serves as the Social Media Manager for the Women’s March, IncShe has worked on campaigns to expand access to affordable healthcare, voting rights restoration, and increasing state-funding for public education. One of Jasmine’s primary goals as a writer is to translate complex policy into accessible stories that inspire people to action. She sees her writing as a reflection of Audre Lorde’s definition of survival: learning how to stand alone, unpopular and sometimes reviled, and how to make common cause with those others identified as outside the structures in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish.
