Jasmin’s career started twenty years ago when she became an AIDS-awareness activist with an educational theater company, later becoming the Campaigns Manager for Farm Sanctuary. Currently, Jasmin sits on the board for the Newark LGBTQ Center.
She is committed to using personal narrative as an inroad to social change; emboldening and collaborating with do-gooders to tell their stories; creatively using media as a means of activism; and continuing to learn about the endless overlaps within social justice. Jasmin currently lives in New York with her wife, cat, and elderly rescue dogs.
With over 20 years of experience, Jasmin has led hundreds of workshops across the globe and debuted her Tedx talk—”Compassion Unlocks Identity”—to a sold-out crowd of two-thousand people at Asbury Park, NJ’s Paramount Theater. She went on a successful 65-city book tour when her first book—Always Too Much and Never Enough—was first published, and is a coveted speaker on topics including radical body positivity, personal narrative as a means of social justice, and how to change the world for animals. Jasmin is a long-time activist across many realms including animal activism, LGBTQ activism, and antiracism.
