Molly Weiner, 2018-2019 Rising Voices Fellow

Molly Weiner is a junior at Lick-Wilmerding High School in San Francisco, where she runs for the cross-country and track teams, writes for the newspaper, and is a co-leader and co-founder of the activism club. She loves to read, paint, and has built her own furniture by hand! When she's not exhausted from track, in her free time she loves to hike. Last summer, she summited the Grand Teton in Wyoming. Molly attributes her love for the natural world in part to her many summers at Camp Tawonga in Yosemite.

As the first woman Justice of New York, Polier valiantly worked to improve the family court, fought for the rights of children and poor families, and tirelessly lobbied to ease quotas on Jewish refugees. Libby Schaaf, the 52-year-old mayor of Oakland, California, also fights for the inclusion of all people.
