Jeremy Ornstein

Student, Organizer, Public Narrative

Jeremy has lived in the Boston area almost all of his life. This past year, he deferred from college and took a year to continue a passion:
youth political organizing.
He considers the work to be rooted in his family’s history– his grandparents fled religious persecution in Europe. And it’s informed by his
home– Watertown, which is made up of people whose parents were born there, people who were born in another country, people who are ready
to work with their hands and others who are ready to work with grad school degrees.
This past summer, Jeremy adventured around the country. He got the chance to see how kids from Detroit to Eugene to NYC are living, and he got
to follow in the footsteps of old poets like Bob Dylan.
