Bracha Bomze

Bracha Nechama Bomze is a native New Yorker who visits the ocean whenever possible, dreaming she is a dolphin in human form. Her first political demonstration, in junior high, was the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam. A “Take Bronx Out of the War” button pinned close to her heart, she joined nationwide student walk-outs, this with both parents’ full support, though she was otherwise not permitted to skip school unless she had a fever.  She will love justice, and strive to protect our Big Blue Marble, for as long as she breathes.

Her book-length poem, Love Justice, was published in March of 2015.
