We hope you are healthy and well in the midst of this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic crisis. We know this is a stressful time for everyone. The purpose of this special MCSP Alumni Newsletter is to send you much love from your MCSPhamily in these difficult days. We hope you will feel the love of your MCSP Community in the many MCSP Spotlights that follow. We hope the words and photos of your fellow MCSP alumni will bring you good cheer and a big smile to your face.
Thinking of each of you,

Years in MCSP: 4 (participant, peer advisor, and resident advisor)
What have you been up to since graduation?
Since graduation, I attended law school and am now a practicing attorney.
What are you currently doing now?
I represent colleges, universities, K-12 schools, and not-for-profit organizations in and around New York.
How do you integrate social justice into your life post-college? I help my clients further their educational missions, many of which include a commitment to equal opportunity, social justice, and access. I help them to both comply with federal and state civil rights laws and to correct actions and omissions that violate those laws. I also volunteer for the Lawyers Alliance for New York through which I provide pro bono legal services to area non-profits, and for CHiPS (Community Help in Park Slope) which addresses issues of food insecurity in Brooklyn, NY.
What is your favorite memory about MCSP? My favorite memories of MCSP are the unstructured, unplanned, late night conversations I had in the hallways with my classmates. The opportunities for spontaneous conversation are more sparse in adult life, and I treasure the memories of those special moments.
