"As Co-Chair of the Board of Directors, I worked with Ruby in her capacity as a Co-Executive Director at FRIDA The Young Feminist Fund for a few years and it was a great experience from the start to end. Due to her position, she had to make difficult decisions and take innovative measures, and it was clear that her feminist politics served as a compass. Her Co-Leadership allowed FRIDA to grow and be a blueprint for many other funds, and feminist and/or women's/queer rights organizations."
