Erica Belfi '21
Erica is a sophomore from a suburb just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. She is pursuing an Environmental Studies major, Health Studies minor, and Peace, Justice & Human Rights concentration at Haverford. As far as her future career goes, she is currently considering environmental law with a focus on global climate refugees and policy reform. When she’s not studying, Erica can be found playing her flute in the basement practice rooms of Marshall Auditorium. Some of her other interests include restorative justice, sustainable agriculture, mental health awareness, national parks, and fall themed candles.
Meg Byrum ‘21
Meg is a sophomore from Greensboro, North Carolina with a prospective major in English and a concentration in Peace, Justice, and Human Rights. Being from the US south heavily influences her understanding of what justice work looks like in local communities, and she hopes to continue building on those ideas in the work she does at the CPGC. On campus, Meg is a Customs Person and a member of Rethink Incarceration.
Lev Greenstein ‘20
Lev Greenstein is a sophomore from Philadelphia majoring in political science with minor in Spanish. He cares deeply about working towards justice on a global scale, especially in relation to migration, and has involved himself with CPGC to do work in that area. Outside of his CPGC involvement, he enjoys crew and a cappella, and hopes to get involved with more clubs as his time at Haverford goes on. He appreciates new people, fulfilling work, and experience, and searches for all three wherever he travels. He continues in his search here, at the CPGC.
Shu Min He ’19
Shu is an anthropology major, specifically cultural anthropology. Her job as an E-Newsletter editor at CPGC allows her to promote various on-campus and off-campus events relating to social justice, which manifests itself through many topics she studies in anthropology. Shu’s love for cultures has led her to several expeditions through CPGC programs, ranging from making salsa in West Virginia to co-teaching computer lessons in a Northern Ghana village. Last but not least, this summer CPGC funded Shu’s work with recent Chinese youth at Asian American United. She can’t wait to pursue more opportunities in youth development and immigrant work!
Vanessa Morales ‘19
Vanessa Morales is a junior anthropology major and Latin American, Iberian, Latina/o studies minor from the golden state, California. While she misses the dry heat and In-n-Out, Vanessa has enjoyed living in and exploring the East Coast. In addition to working at the CPGC, Vanessa also spends her time working at the OAR and the Coop, and serves as Vice-President for ALAS. Having grown up in Santa Ana, CA, Vanessa is passionate about immigration law and policy reform, and gentrification. As a low-income student, she looks forward to helping students connect with the CPGC to find programs and internships that help them develop an understanding of the world outside of a textbook or classroom lecture.
Heather Robinson '19
I am a senior psychology major and neuroscience and dance minor and every Wednesday, I bake for the CPGC Cafe. Because of the CPGC, I was able to volunteer at an organization in Boston that provided services for individuals with convictions to reintegrate into society. I also received funding from the CPGC to host a talk here on campus about "banning the box," a campaign whose goal is to get rid of questions asking about one's criminal record in school and job applications.
Theodora Rodine ’19
Theodora is a Junior studying anthropology and Peace, Justice, and Human Rights at Haverford. She wants to use her college education to help create effective and radical solutions for some of the world's problems. She loves theatre and is a board member and Production Manager for Spotlight Theatre Company. Theodora lives in Quaker House and loves cooking and visiting Philadelphia when she can.
Soha Saghir ‘21
Soha is a sophomore with a prospective double major in Political Science and Economics with a concentration in Peace, Justice and Human Rights. After college, she hopes to specialize in immigration policy and work for immigration reform as she is deeply invested in the issue. Moving around a lot as a child, the word “home” for her does not refer to a singular place and her experiences make her a strong believer in the concept of global citizenship. This along with the wish to bring more of the outside world to Haverford are what pushed her to get involved with the CPGC. Other than the CPGC her involvements on campus include being a board member for the ISA, a Peer Awareness Facilitator for Customs and a Representative to Honor Council for her class. She cares deeply about advancing social justice, both on campus and in the outside world, and wants to keep working in this direction, one step at a time. (Also, she loves making friends so please say hi and talk if you see her, she would appreciate that so much!!)

They're a member of Looney Tunes Acapella, on the board of Greasepaint productions, and they are also a Customs Person (CP) on Barclay 3rd South. They're very interested in education in the United States and the necessary reform that needs to take place, and hope to explore this topic more through the CPGC.
Kate Weiler BMC ’20
Kate Weiler is a sophomore from Sudbury, Massachusetts. In addition to working at CPGC, Kate is on the executive board of Latin dance troupe Pulso Latino and serves as a Customs Person at Bryn Mawr.
