About Me


I’m Jennifer Li. Here are a few things about me, in no particular order:

  • Originally from Chinatown, New York. Now in Oakland, CA. Was in Washington, D.C., and Northampton, MA (Smith College) before that.
  • I once got a racist and misogynistic pick-up artist’s Visa denied in 6 countries, and kicked him out of 10 venues in less than a month through a break-neck speed viral campaign. You can read all about it here.
  • I’m a Regional Director for Rise— I was the California State Director in 2017. On Oct. 12, 2017, Governor Brown signed the bill I had worked tirelessly on into law. This has been one of my proudest accomplishments– to grant 11 million California survivors basic rights. I’m working with our team to get New York legislation passed too. Every state should have a Sexual Assault Survivor Bill of Rights.
  • I’m an out-of-practice “artist”. Some of my crappy artwork has gone viral and been featured in various publications and museums.
  • I was featured on Apartment Therapy! Check out the tour here.
  • Digital strategist for labor unions. Currently at IFPTE Local 21. Used to be on AFSCME’s Digital team and was AFGE’s Online Political Coordinator before that.
  • I can individually raise either one of my eyebrows.
  • Interned at Congressional Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, U.S. Rep. Edolphus Towns’ office, and NY Assemblymember Deborah Glick’s office back in the day.
  • Really likes cats, tea, plants, and Sailor Moon.
  • Generally allergic to bullshit.
