  • Lily Brent

    Director, Repair the World Atlanta
    Lily Brent is a writer and social worker whose curiosity and commitment to service catalyzed a career in international development, spanning six countries over the last eight years. But her search for the nuanced, every day work of community-led social justice has brought her to Repair the World. As the founding director for Repair the World Atlanta, she is thrilled to join other young Jews in critical self-reflection, study, volunteering with local partners, and strengthening alliances among diverse communities. Lily’s professional life has focused on creating the conditions for youth to reach their full potential in the U.S. and abroad.  She has provided psychosocial support to adolescents in such diverse settings as a New York City public school and outpatient psychiatric clinic, a D.C. mentoring program for kids in foster care, and the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda. She has worked on adolescent sexual/reproductive health & rights in Niger and Bangladesh, and ensuring that women and youth can access the benefits of development projects in Benin, Mongolia and Nepal. Lily also spent three years working to reform criminal justice policy and practice in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Virginia. In her rare spare time, Lily can be found reading and writing fiction, failing at arts and crafts projects, cooking the same chickpea recipe over and over, or playing cards.[email protected]

      Site Development Fellow, Repair the World Atlanta

    • RACHEL BUKOWITZ

      Site Development Fellow, Repair the World Atlanta
      Rachel studied Environmental Studies and Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. During her undergraduate studies she worked with a local nonprofit, The Homewood Children's Village, to develop a 33-page “Healthy Food and Gardening Guide" for Homewood residents. Homewood is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh without a grocery store, so the guide served to highlight alternative options for accessing healthy, affordable food including community gardens, food banks, farm stands, farmers markets, and more. After graduating from Pitt, Rachel served as a Food Justice Fellow with Repair the World Pittsburgh. In her Fellowship, Rachel worked with 412 Food Rescue, Just Harvest, and Circles Greater Pittsburgh around issues of food advocacy and poverty. She dedicated herself to service and deeply learning about the systemic root causes of poverty and hunger. [email protected]
