I am Lily Paltrowitz and I am a 2021 summer intern for Community Action Works. I am a Sophomore at Newton South High School where I am a member of the student government focusing on creating an equitable, more inclusive school community. I am passionate about environmental justice and its convergence with social equity. I firmly believe in the power of local communities to unite against all forms of injustice and enact meaningful, lasting change. In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports, spending time with friends and family, and traveling.
