Sara Li


FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Sara founded Project Consent in the summer of 2014 as a junior in high school; she used her self-taught skills of graphic design and coding to create a safe space for survivors of sexual assault to come together in solidarity. The platform eventually bloomed into an organization that she now runs with the help of the wonderful, powerful people below. Sara describes the motivating force behind Project Consent as "[being] the voice that I needed when I was younger." In addition to Project Consent, Sara is also the Chief Creative Officer for Sara & Company, where she hosts her own podcast and newsletter. She is very proud of what Project Consent has accomplished in these short four years and hopes to continue doing humanitarian work in the years to come.

Currently, Sara is located in Kansas City, Missouri, but dreams of traveling all over. You can reach her through e-mail or contact her via Twitter, where she is probably tweeting about Taylor Swift.
