Kristin Urquiza ’03 is the granddaughter of migrant farmworkers and the daughter of a first-generation Mexican-American, Mark Urquiza, who lost his life to Covid-19 last month. To honor her father, Kristin started a grassroots organization Marked By Covid dedicated to collecting stories and elevating the truth about the virus that is killing Black and Latino people at twice the rate of whites.
David Blasher ’01 serves as board chair for Drama Club a nonprofit that provides theater, improv programming, and mentoring to incarcerated and court-involved youth in New York City. Drama Club realizes that the sense of play, belonging, and collaboration inherent in theater making are key elements that can promote positive mental health in everyone, particularly our vulnerable youth.
Kiran Chokshi ‘20 and Zo Orchingwa ’21 Law & SOM (Co-Founder, pictured ) are on the leadership team of Ameelio , the nation’s first free prison communications platform. The mission of Ameelio is to reconnect the incarcerated with their loved ones through digital solutions that facilitate the free delivery of letters and video-conferencing. Their ultimate goal is to decouple incarceration and profit.
Dasia Moore ’18 is the chair of Go South , a social impact organization that encourages and mobilizes college students in the Northeast to consider mission-driven careers in the American South. Go South believes that exposing Ivy League graduates to the many cultural, economic, and political opportunities in the South can have a transformative impact on both the young leaders and ultimately the region.
