Zhara is a Spelman Graduate with a B.A. in Political Science. Prior to joining Hand in Hand, she served as an Organizer at CeaseFire PA mobilizing to fight the gun violence crisis throughout Pennsylvania. She also worked as a Canvass Organizer through the City of Philadelphia Philly Counts program, where she raised awareness around COVID vaccines as well as to Get Out the Vote for the critical 2022 elections. Zhara was raised by domestic workers— the matriarchs of her family working as nannies and house cleaners. This experience and perspective brought her to Hand in Hand, where she is excited to build and grow the domestic worker rights movement in New York City.
