Danielle Irene Goldstein was born in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 5th, 1997. Danielle lived in Nevada until she was 15 years old, then moved to Virginia where her dedication and devotion to social justice flourished.
She was especially passionate about racial justice and abolition. As an undergrad, Danielle worked with ODU's Humanities Behind Bars program to advocate for and educate prisoners. While pursuing her graduate degree at the ODU Institute of Humanities, she focused these efforts into HBB’s pen-pal program which aimed to foster friendships between incarcerated individuals and volunteers on the outside.
On April 8, 2021, Danielle tragically passed after she took a pill that she did not know contained the deadly substance fentanyl. She is deeply missed by her family and friends. Danielle’s passing is a loss felt throughout many communities where she touched countless lives.
