A smart, contemporary, stylish, and practical handbook for aspiring teen girl activists who are mad as hell about the way the world is going and aren't gonna take it anymore.
KaeLyn Rich is a staff writer for the popular queer women's website
Autostraddle.com (Alexa rank- 9,128 in the US). A queer feminist, a
direct action organizer, a nonprofit lifer, and sexuality educator,
she is the director of the Genesee Valley Chapter of the New York
Civil Liberties Union, the former community affairs coordinator for
Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York, and has
community organizing experience that dates back to stuffing folders
for her parents' union meetings.
KaeLyn holds B.A. degrees in women's studies and English from SUNY College at Oswego; an M.A. in Liberal Studies degree from SUNY College at Brockport with an emphasis on feminist intersectionality in the nonprofit sector, and a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from the certified M.P.A. program at SUNY College at Brockport. She lives in Rochester, NY with her spouse, their new baby, and a house full of furkids- a xenophobic cat, two bossy bunnies, and two quirky guinea pigs.
