Sophie Dulberg is a Research Associate/ Policy Analyst at Texas Housers, where she is inspired daily by the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. As a researcher, she gathers and shares information about infrastructure and environmental justice issues in the greater Houston area. She maps, analyzes, and educates grassroots community groups on plans and data related to the I-45 highway expansion, unpaved roads in colonias north of Houston, and a toxic site near Union Pacific's railyard in Fifth Ward. She is driven to do this work by a deep passion for human rights, transparency, and civic participation.
In her spare time, Sophie teaches educational workshops on Judaism and social justice as an Avodah Justice Ambassador. This year, she will be teaching a six-part series at Kehillah High to 8th and 9th grade students.
Prior to working in these roles, Sophie performed fair housing investigations at the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center and conducted research for international, people-powered food justice and tobacco control campaigns at Corporate Accountability International. She grew up in Lexington, MA and holds a B.S. degree in Biology from Tufts University. Some other interests of hers include intentional communities, reading, walking in the woods, and folk dance.
