He is also actively involved with diversity and inclusion initiatives within Edelman.

Jeremy Tjhung moved to Rochester in 2018 with a one-year mission: to volunteer, to work on campaigns, and to register as many voters as possible. Three years later, he is still here, working on community outreach for Moms Demand Action, the ROC Against Gun Violence Coalition, and Indivisible Rochester.  He has also worked with the Memorial Art Gallery, Artists Coalition for Change Together, the Out Alliance, and the Rochester Public Library.  He is hopeful that 2021 will bring renewed life to the activist community and that everyone will vote in upcoming local elections.

She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the State University of New York at Buffalo, majoring in Global Gender and Sexuality Studies, where her focus is on gender equality and violence and discrimination against women and minorities.
