Community Organizer and Co-Creator
Julia Solow has been the Westchester County Community Organizer at Community Voices Heard since November of 2013. Julia was inspired to build a life in pursuit of justice by her grandparents who were union organizers and community activists. She started organizing with the Virginia chapter of DREAM Activist while still an undergraduate at James Madison University. Before coming to CVH, she had the privilege to work with students, labor leaders and community activists through positions at John Carroll University's Center for Service and Social Action, the AFL-CIO National Campaigns Department and the East Harlem-based Latino Leadership Institute. Julia has helped build CVH Yonkers into a Westchester County-wide chapter. She is a member of the national training team at People's Action and is a co-creator of CVH's Ella Baker School of Community Organizing.
