Zoe Ridolfi-Starr (Columbia ’15) is a co-founder of No Red Tape, a group of survivors and allies fighting to end sexual violence and rape culture at Columbia and beyond. As a second generation queer woman and a survivor of sexual violence survivor herself, she is committed to centering the voices of survivors and people of marginalized identity in anti-violence work, and building community-based solutions to sexual violence that do not rely on inherently violent institutions like the prison-industrial complex. She enjoys searching for the best dumplings in NYC.
