Sofie Karasek is a progressive movement builder and organizer. When she was a 19-year-old at UC Berkeley, she co-founded the national non-profit End Rape on Campus, where she and a band of scrappy student survivors transformed campus rape from a PR blip to a national scandal, brought Yes Means Yes into the mainstream, and were branded as a "well-funded Death Star". She was also featured in The Hunting Ground film and Lady Gaga's 2016 Academy Awards performance.
Sofie now trains other young organizers to harness the power of storytelling to ignite public support for progressive change. She is passionate about reimagining justice for sexual violence, transforming voting from a privilege to a right, and preventing the climate crisis from washing away the home she grew up in. (And convincing other Americans that Danish salty licorice is the best).
