Hi!! My name is Sarah (she/her) and I'm just getting started on the criminal justice reform team. My fun fact is that when I interned at a chamber music festival one summer, I took part in a performance of György Ligeti's "Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes". It's a composition that is for sure performance art, where it is just 100 metronomes set up on stage ticking until they stop.

100 metronomes! That sounds rally interesting! Were they ticking in the same time signature or were they creating a cool beat?

Hi everyone! My name is Sam Chavez (she/her). I just founded a company, Knurdology, to help improve progressive candidates' and activists' marketing and communications. I am passionate about social justice, anti-racism, and the climate crisis and I hope to use my marketing skills to support those on the front lines. Fun fact, I have traveled to every continent (minus Antarctica!) before my 30th birthday. I can't wait to travel again!   

Hi Sam! Welcome to Révolutionnaire 👋🏾
Knurdology sounds amazing - will definitely check it out! It is super cool that you’ve travelled to almost every continent! Do you have a fave place that you’ve visited?

Thanks, Nia! That's a really tough question. There are too many beautiful places in this world. I would have to say Kenya and New Zealand. Both were life-changing in different ways. New Zealand was beautiful, while for Kenya it was the beauty of the people. 

You can check out Knurdology here: https://knurdology.substack.com/
