Steven Pacheco is an undergraduate at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice majoring in Sociology. Growing up in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, social injustices have always been within arm’s reach in his everyday life. With this sort of upbringing, his desire & passion to combat these inequities emerged. Currently occupying a fellowship position at the Vera Institute of Justice via the Center on Youth Justice, he can also be found doing activist work with various grassroots organizations to improve mass incarceration issues, tuition hikes, immigrants' rights, workers’ rights, women’s rights, & more. Aside from working in conjunction with various grassroots organizations, Steven enjoys writing songs & poetry as well. Music is equally as important to him as his social service endeavors, & so he also works to develop talent & propel these acts to reach the next level. Steven plans to work his way into the field of mentorship for at-risk youth in the months to come.

Jo Chiang is a Taiwanese-American actor, writer, filmmaker, & activist based in New York City.  She has trained under Tom Nelis (SITI Company), Sharon Fogarty (Mabou Mines), Charise Greene (The Affair), & the San Francisco Mime Troupe.  She studied theatre & women's leadership at Barnard College, undertaking research that investigated the performance of the body as a site of resistance.  Her film work has been featured by Women & Hollywood, Athena Film Festival, Wifey.tv, Everyday Feminism, & Upworthy.  Her work as an actor has mostly fallen into two categories– that is, really weird German theatre & Shakespeare, while her work as a writer tends to lean towards the dystopic & the odd heist film.  She served on the Executive Board of the King's Crown Shakespeare Troupe & is a founding member of The Found Co.  Please check out her photography at Cup of Jo Photography.
