Springboard Social Justice Fellow
Madeline Amonick grew up in Aurora, Colorado before moving to Baltimore to attend Johns Hopkins University, where she studied literature, creative writing, and feminist and queer theory. She found her commitment to social justice serving with community partners in Baltimore. From working with Station North Arts District to teaching creative writing in Baltimore City schools, Madeline’s work was continuously inspired by Jewish values of tzedek and tikkun olam. In her new role, she is excited to teach and learn alongside the Northwestern community about the ways in which Judaism and justice are intrinsically connected. In her free time, Madeline and her cat Morris like to do sudoku puzzles and watch RuPaul’s Drag Race.
