Farrah Alexander is a writer whose work focuses on feminism, parenting, social justice, politics, and current events. The title of Sunday’s upcoming presentation, The Religious Pursuit of Justice, comes from a guiding principle in her life “Justice, justice shall you pursue” found in the Torah that also led Jews such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

As an advocate for gun reform, she is a member of the Everytown Authors Council, which was designed to “harness the power of the literary community to amplify the gun safety movement.” She served as a Jeremiah Fellow with Bend the Arc, a Jewish Partnership for Justice, which aims to combat white supremacy and mobilize communities for social change.

Ms. Alexander now serves on the local Jewish Community Relations Council. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and is currently pursuing a JD from that university’s McKinney School of Law. She currently works in the legal department of the ACLU of Kentucky for the summer. She lives in a suburb of Louisville with her husband, son, and daughter.

She has been known to say, “I think often activists in red states have grit and passion for their causes that are incomparable.”  Join us to hear the wisdom of this local activist!
