Jerin Arifa is a formerly undocumented activist who changed millions of lives. Jerin spearheaded the sexual harassment, assault, domestic violence and anti-stalking policy for the third largest university in the U.S. — while undocumented!
Now, as an American citizen, Jerin trains activists across the U.S. as the Founder of the National Organization for Women’s (NOW) inaugural virtual chapter, Young Feminists and Allies. She engineers safe spaces for marginalized groups, such as sold-out events for LGBTQAI+ Muslims.
When not training activists, Jerin leverages 14 years of successes in corporate and nonprofit communications strategies—along with expertise in ending gender-based discrimination—to provide proven sexual harassment solutions to reduce employee turnover and increase productivity.
A multi-talented leader, Jerin’s award-winning work ranges from cutting-edge cancer research to community organizing. President Obama’s White House chose her out of 10,000 nominees to attend the historic United State of Women Summit. Her work has appeared in diverse outlets from The New York Times to Cosmopolitan, and she presents regularly to local, national and international audiences.
