Rachel Leone is an organizer with Occupy Wall Street, primarily working with the Direct Action Working Group. In the seven years before coming to New York, she lived and studied in Boston. She co-founded an activist cooperative house where she organized actions for environmental justice, booked all-ages music shows, created and self-published a bi-weekly radical/cheap events calendar 'zine called High-Five, and learned about anarchism and community.
