I met Eve Levenson when she joined my Women’s Studies class during her sophomore year of high school. Eve was the youngest member of her class but certainly no less wise, and it was apparent early on that Eve’s exposure to activism and human rights would lend itself to her knowledge and understanding of the gendered experience of men and women. 

Eve is a passionate, untiring advocate who speaks eloquently, and she is not afraid to ask important questions. Her high school teachers often commented on her enthusiasm, engagement, and courage to speak her mind, as well as her wisdom, maturity, and keen sense of justice. At her high school graduation, Eve was awarded the highest social justice and community service honor given by her school. 

As her community service advisor wrote: “This young woman has been visibly engaged in community service and activism throughout her four years at Brentwood, exercising a leadership role on campus through her work with the Brentwood World Watch Club, The Girl Impact, admissions and diversity events, and the Young Women’s Conference." Beyond campus, she had countless volunteer hours as a community organizer, activist, teaching assistant, speaker, and changemaker at events and assemblies for the Jewish World Watch, the Los Angeles Homeless Count, and I-ACT, among others. With a deep concern for social justice and equity issues, Eve puts endless time and care into fundraising, awareness-raising, and community outreach efforts, lending her passionate voice to bring attention to myriad issues. When she encounters injustice, Eve is always quick to rally her peers and her community to take action. 

We would like to think that the genesis of Eve’s passion stemmed from her strong foundation at Brawerman Elementary School, where she practiced tikkun olam. Eve noted that synagogue is where she learned the Jewish values that shaped the way she lives her life. 

I am so impressed by Eve and thrilled that she will be leading the next generation of change agents.
