Madeline Canfield is a senior at the Emery/Weiner School in Houston, TX, where she leads the social activism and politics clubs. When escaping the ever-presence of school and studying, she volunteers for her synagogue’s religious school as a TA and for political candidates. She ardently organizes youth around climate justice (passivity is naive in a flood city where kids fear rain), primarily through a local hub of the Sunrise Movement, the Houston Youth Climate Change Coalition, and Zero Hour. She understands the prodigious value of the art of reading and writing—the fellowship will further develop her reverence of this art.
