Marley Moynahan: Georgetown graduate, human-rights activist

This photo was taken near the end of the 200-mile March for Rights, Respect, and Fair Food last spring.  Marley helped document march through photography and video. Marley Moynahan, born and raised in Tallahassee, attended The Magnolia School from kindergarten through 6th grade. She graduated from the Rickards IB program and earned the 2007 Best & Brightest first place award for foreign language. She majored in Culture and Politics at Georgetown University, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Marley now works for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a worker-led human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of corporate social responsibility, community organizing, women’s rights, and sustainable food. She has four chickens and shares a large garden with her neighbors in rural Florida.

“I think the work I'm doing now is the most exciting thing, more than going to Georgetown,” said Marley. “Georgetown was the absolutely necessary bridge, but it's the meadow that I've now reached that is the thing young children should aspire to if they take my trajectory as a model.”
