Julia Marra joined Equality Now in July 2017. Julia previously worked at New Yorkers for Parks in several development roles, most recently as Senior Development Associate where she organized annual fundraising events. In college she co-organized a service-learning trip to Southern India to visit several human rights and youth-focused NGOs, which sparked her desire to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector. Julia is a magna cum laude graduate of Gordon College (US), where she studied Business Administration and Nonprofit Management.
Julia is inspired every day by the passionate and hardworking women in her family and by her lifelong friends. Her favorite quote is from Michelle Obama: “Every day, you have the power to choose our better history - by opening your hearts and minds, by speaking up for what you know is right.”
Outside the office, Julia enjoys reading, hiking and going to the beach.
