Derek Rosenfeld, Manager of Social Media and Media Relations
Derek Rosenfeld is DPA's manager of social media and media relations, based in New York. He strives to promote harm reduction strategies for dealing with drug use, enjoys staying current on drug policy reform issues, and makes every effort to share current events with as many people as possible.
Prior to joining the organization, Rosenfeld interned with New York City Council Member Stephen Levin (D-33) in Brooklyn, NY, where he handled constituent casework, budget responsibilities, and other tasks. He also worked side-by-side with the Greenpoint/Williamsburg Community Liaison in an effort to establish a “wet” homeless shelter in the Greenpoint area of Brooklyn.

His interests in criminal justice and civil rights, as well as a Sociology class called “Drugs & Society,” catalyzed his passion for drug policy reform.
