Founder and Executive Director
With a background in social work, teaching and non-profit work, Joni has seen the impact that inspiration can have on the trajectory of a person’s life. After enduring a personal trauma and feeling voiceless due to societal pressures, she strives to impart in others that their voice is important and that each person matters and can make a difference.
When asked by a former activist in the civil rights movement when she had last read her Constitution, she was inspired to take action and make a difference. Thus began her mission to empower our youth with a sense of ownership to the document as it belongs to all citizens.
The U.S. Constitution inspired Joni to know her value and her rights. She is passionate that our youth of today appreciate and honor our Constitution and understand the relevance in their lives for the present and the future.
