Her previous experience includes assisting in behavior analysis and driving simulation reaction time research at Central Michigan University, serving as an intern with U.S. Probation, and working with young victims of trauma, abuse, and neglect at a residential placement in Detroit.

She is committed to criminal legal reform, harm reduction, and the eradication of existing patriarchal, white supremacist, and heteronormative power structures. Autumn's ultimate goal is to promote equality, equity, and justice for all individuals regardless of their background, race, gender, or sexual orientation.
