She got her start in activism at the first March For Our Lives in 2018 and has since participated in various movements, including reproductive justice, climate justice, and, of course, gun violence prevention.

Lily previously served as the Outreach Coordinator from 2021 to 2022, and the Volunteer Coordinator from 2020 to 2021. She is excited to use her strong background 
with March For Our Lives to continue empowering change as Lead Coordinator. In her free time, Lily enjoys reading, learning new songs on the guitar, and playing with her Golden Retriever.
