Kelsey is joining the Unity Gardens as an intern to help with fund raising, grant writing, and research as well as work in the gardens, of course. She recently completed her bachelor’s degree at Duke University with a self-designed major entitled Sex and Power: Gendered Relationships. She plans to attend law school and become a human rights lawyer and activist. Eventually, she hopes to work for an organization such as the ACLU or the Justice Department.
Kelsey’s background is mainly in the field of advocacy for women. She has worked on issues ranging from sex trafficking in Southeast Asia to dating violence and sexual assault her own college campus. She has experience in the nonprofit world as well as with grant funding processes through the federal government. However, Kelsey is excited for this opportunity to branch out from her expertise and learn about a different kind of nonprofit as well as develop her professional skills while doing good in the community.
