Grace Harsche is originally from Mount Laurel, New Jersey but went to school at Tulane University in New Orleans where she just graduated. At Tulane, she double-majored in international relations and social policy and practice with a minor in gender and sexuality studies. Through Tulane, she had the opportunity to visit and study Palestine two years in a row and was also involved in her Student Union for Reproductive Justice, an organization that provides sex-ed to middle schoolers and an emergency contraception delivery service. She is spending this summer working on Nantucket before heading to Amsterdam on a Fulbright scholarship to get her Master's degree in political science at Vrije University.

Why did you apply to On Earth Peace? What drew you to the organization?

On Earth Peace by nature is super intersectional because we cover so many issues but do so in really collaborative ways. Everyone on board is always working with each other and supporting or adding on to one another's projects. I like being able to focus on an issue that is really important to me while still gaining experience elsewhere.

What are your favorite projects that you’ve worked on?

I've only been with OEP for a short time, but thus far I've really loved getting the Palestine Justice newsletter off the ground!

How has OEP affected your future aspirations?

I think that OEP has really confirmed for me that I want to continue working on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It has also given me some direction on the type of work environment that I prefer. I love the collaborative and casual environment of OEP.

What would you like people to know about OEP and yourself?

I think what is awesome about OEP is that there are so many ways for individuals to make a difference. If you are interested in Palestine Justice specifically, I'm always here to help you execute your vision!
