Founding Student Coordinator, Tufts University Peace and Justice Society
Abigail established the Tufts University Peace and Justice Society to create a community for students interested in the Peace and Justice Studies major and to encourage and increase dialogue between student groups interested in promoting social justice. She has used social media platforms to communicate curriculum changes occurring within the major and shared her findings with the Tufts University Administration, Provost, and President.

Abigail also participates in community service work through Tufts University's largest undergraduate organization known as the Leonard Carmichael Society.
