I am so excited to be joining the Peace and Justice Center as the New Volunteer Coordinator/ Assistant Store Manager as well as Facilitating the Racial Justice and Non-Violent Communication Educational Programs! It is not lightly that I step into this work, as a Lakota and Latina Woman I realize the importance of these programs and the Work that is being done by PJC. It is my hope to continue to foster amazing relationships with all of you while engaging in dynamic conversations that will bring about real healing change!

I am incredibly blessed to have grown up at Kunsi Keya Tamakoce in Huntington, VT. KKT is a non-Profit organization that is led by my Unci (Grandmother) Beverly Little Thunder and my family. We are dedicated to teaching the ways of our Lakota people to help build stronger communities through ceremony and spiritual guidance. It is a part of my culture to be of service to my family and to my community and having the opportunity to work with my Unci at PJC is a prayer come true!
