The Meteor amplifies the voices of women—especially those underrepresented in traditional media—through storytelling, journalism and art.
I helped produce and direct Night of Solidarity - stories, songs, and conversations to stand with survivors of domestic violence, deepening understanding of this issue and offering solutions. Hosted by Tamron Hall and featuring Melissa Benoist, Shan Boodram, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Gloria Gaynor, Carrie Goldberg, Angelique Kidjo, Padma Lakshmi, J.R. Martinez, MILCK, Chanel Miller, Tony Porter, Rachel Louise Snyder, Zozibini Tunzi, Gabrielle Union, and more, the event premiered on May 13, 2020 on YouTube.
I also produced content for 30 Days Till Tomorrow, which explored the political power of female voters and highlighted the fight to protect the right to vote. Among other projects for the series which launched in October 2020, I worked on Tatyana Fazlalizadeh’s Wheatpasting Project, which included art by Molly Crabapple, Shyama Golden, Mia Nolting, and Carrie Mae Weems; and a collaboration between Mariane Pearl and Debbie Millman based on Pearl’s essay “Behind My Ballot”.
