Carly Rose Taylor, CUIP Intern
I am a third year from Crown. I am a double major in Psychology and Feminist Studies. A fun fact about me is that I taught my two year old niece how to dance and now she is better than me. I became involved with CARE through SAFE my first year here. For my position this year I will be overseeing the violence prevention peer educator program, the volunteer program, and working with professional staff to host workshops and trainings. I am most looking forward to having many complicated and insightful conversations with my peers and colleagues about what a culture of consent could mean.
Satveer Kler, Communications and Outreach CoordinatorI am a third year from Oakes. I am a double major in Psychology and Literature (creative writing). A fun fact about me is that I can cross my eyes. I became involved with CARE because originally I was a volunteer for SAFE during my first year. For my position this year I will be representing CARE at different events on and off campus and will be doing outreach work to different groups on campus. I also manage the social media pages. I am most looking forward to seeing our presence on campus continue to grow and strengthening and and building ties with other organizations.
Kami Brawer, Office Manager
I am a fourth year affiliated with Cowell College. I’m also a Feminist Studies major and Politics minor. A fun face about me is that I am a black belt in Tang Soo Do. I recently changed my major to Feminist Studies and someone came into one of my lectures and made an announcement about CARE. I said to myself, “That is exactly the kind of work that I want to be doing in my life.” I am the office manager this year, so I will be making sure that the office is a safer and inviting space where people feel welcome and comfortable. I am most looking forward to coming up with creative ideas for workshops that help spread a culture of consent around UCSC.
Katia Shrayber, Graphic Design and Marketing Coordinatoryshraybe@ucsc.edu
I am a third year from Porter and I am a double major in Psychology and Film & Digital Media. A fun fact about me is that I have really complicated Starbucks orders, so this is a public apology to all the lovely baristas in the world. I became involved with CARE because I was browsing the ER system for on-campus jobs and have previously heard of CARE, so I was excited to find an opportunity to work with them! For my position this year, I will be creating our publicity materials, such as flyers and posters and other rad stuff. I am looking forward to using my love for graphics to promote and grow a culture of consent!
