About Me

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. In 2018, I helped our New York Sexual Assault Survivor Bill of Rights get passed. Governor Cuomo signed it on December 21, 2018. Every state needs to 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.
