She has previously worked with the New York Public Interest Research Group, Feminists for Liberty, Family Law and Cannabis Alliance, and Students for Sensible Drug Policy where she served as Development Director. Through her work in various issue-based groups, Rachel has found a passion for building consensus among people across the political spectrum to achieve policy goals.
