Group Leader: Michelle Jacobson

Michelle (she/her) combines her passion for comprehensive sexual health education with her passion for community building as a Prevention Services and Social Media Coordinator for the queer nonprofit HeyDenver. Outside of work, Michelle can be found dancing or creating all kinds of art. When Michelle was in high school she was part of a leadership, empowerment, and service learning organization for Jewish girls; this program introduced her to feminism and shaped her life. It was so powerful to have a safe space of like-minded people to explore her identities and values. Michelle is thrilled to be leading Tzelem Aliz because she wants to create similar experiences for queer youth.
