ORANGE GIRAFFE PROJECT
Co-Founder and President
In partnership with NYC hospitals, museums, arts centers, and volunteer jewelry designers, Orange Giraffe Project provides opportunities for people living with cancer to create personalized jewelry: wearable art that opens the heart, adorns the body, and celebrates the human spirit. Our programs are designed to nurture wellness through collaboration, creativity, beauty, fun, and love - for both participants and volunteers. We hope to build beautiful experiences, one OGP project at a time.

UNBROKEN BY BARS
Unbroken By Bars is a public art and storytelling project that brings the narratives of previously incarcerated women of color out from behind bars and into public space, working toward breaking the cycle of inter-generational incarceration in their families and toward futures free of prison through activism and self-care.
In 2018, I'll be interviewing 3 previously incarcerated women and creating an art piece with messages of family and hope.
Learn more about Unbroken by Bars here and view the art and stories from the first phase of this project, created by Jess X Snow, in collaboration with Race and Revolution, The Amplifier Foundation, John Key, Dock Print Studio, and disseminated by volunteers nationwide.
