Jeremy Cohan is the Steering Committee Representative for the North Brooklyn branch. Jeremy joined DSA in November 2016. He has been active in political education as a founder of the North Brooklyn Night School, in student organizing as a founder of the NYU and SVA YDSAs, and as a foot soldier for our electoral, healthcare, and housing campaigns. He is a professor of sociology at the School of Visual Arts, and is working on his book on neoliberal education reform and the 2012 Chicago teachers strike. He loves his cat Mimi – with whom he is bonding nonstop during this pandemic and his building’s rent strike – as well as literature, philosophy, and music.
Jess Macdonald joined DSA in early 2020 during the height of the chapter’s Bernie Sanders canvassing efforts. She helped as an organizer and volunteer on a number of campaigns, including the Julia Salazar 2020 re-election campaign, the 2020 Defund NYPD budget fight the 2021 city council races, and the 2022 Samy Olivares campaign. Most recently she was steering representative for the North Brooklyn branch.
