My name is June, like the month, Moses like in the bible. I was adopted and raised in Westchester County in New York. I now reside, and have for the past 25 years, in the wonderful village of Harlem in NYC. At almost half a century, I have seen the world change, grow, retract and go back to growing and there are two things I have found to be valuable: being a lifelong learner in any way and try to be a better person today than you were yesterday. I have worked in civil rights/social justice on some level in some form, all my life. I believe that people can and are the agents of change they seek so it gives me great pleasure that L.Joy has taken me along for this great ride with the creation of #SundayCivics.
