Sami Watts is a Chicana flutist and activist from LA! She began her work at CLRJ as a Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps fellow, and now assists with digital media content creation and research as CLRJ’s Digital Media Associate. Sami is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree in Flute Performance with a minor in Women and Gender Studies at the New England Conservatory of Music. Sami’s RJ journey began with her work at CLRJ and the ACLU National Advocacy Institute, but her personal experiences as a Latina and an artist in the predominantly white, heteropatriarchal field of classical music led her to advocacy work. At NEC, Sami is Co-President of the Students Advocating for Gender Equity (SAGE) club where she hopes to continue to work on dismantling white supremacy in the music industry and creating spaces free from oppressive mindsets and binaries. Sami is also an amateur fashion designer, and enjoys sewing, going on picnics, and spending time with her best friends.
