Pierce Delahunt is from both New York and New Jersey. They grew up hating most of their own education. Over time, Pierce came to social-emotional learning and activist-education as the pieces most needed. They look at IHE’s work, and their own, as the union of the two fields. They graduated with an M.Ed. from Valparaiso/IHE in 2017. During the summer, Pierce works with Youth Empowered Action, an activist-education summer camp. During the school year, they tour the country’s schools, speaking to students about activism.
