Manager of Youth Organizing & Education
Mara (she/her) rejoined the JCUA staff in 2019 after organizing around Chicago’s municipal elections and housing justice issues with Grassroots Illinois Action in Humboldt Park. She leads JCUA’s youth organizing work and supports high school and young adults in the JCUA community. In 2017-2018, Mara was JCUA’s Avodah Organizer. When not at work, you can find Mara laughing with her friends and with her toes in the lake.
