Meet Avashini Singh and Hurmat Hashmi from Brooklyn, two teens on a social justice mission. They are RAP’s new youth board members. They will bring fresh perspectives on how to involve young people in the very rewarding task of advocacy and social change.
Avashini, 17, is a senior and an honors student at Clara Barton High School. She is looking for activity that involves public service. Another senior from Clara Barton is 16-year-old Hurmat Hashmi, a first-generation Pakistani American who has volunteered at homeless shelters and organized fundraisers for social justice causes.
