Why Consume What You Can Create?


June Marisa Kaewsith, also known as "Jumakae", is a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and organizer based in Long Beach, CA. She has conducted spoken word workshops and mural projects with various youth groups, and has facilitated theater skits with community members addressing local issues from wage theft to environmental racism. In her journey toward social justice and healing, she has learned that art and creativity must be central in movement building and collective action. Her current focuses are around the intersections of community violence, and exploring alternative forms of intervention that don't rely on the criminal justice system.
Through her practice as a wellness consultant, she is a 200 hr registered yoga teacher trained to work with survivors of sexual trauma and professionally certified transformational life coach with a vision to empower others in becoming more comfortable in their mind, body, and spirit.

A revolution that is based on the people exercising their creativity in the midst of devastation is one of the great historical contributions of humankind.
