About Me

me

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

  • 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. Governor Brown signed the bill I worked tireless on into law on Oct. 12, 2017. 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 who makes stuff when there’s a deadline or I remember to (which is not often). 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.
  • I’m currently level 35 on Pokemon Go.
  • 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 (Sailor Uranus is my favorite if anyone’s asking).
  • Allergic to bullshit.
