June Nemon is the Organizing Strategist at For the Many. They hail from Asheville, NC; which, due to an explosion of tourism and collusion between city hall and corporate developers, became one of the most gentrified and over-policed cities in the US over the course of June’s adolescence.
After 5 years of working in local politics to slow some of the worst excesses of the tourism economy, they went on to work on a couple of Congressional races and as the Des Moines Regional Field Director for Bernie Sanders during the 2020 Democratic primary. June is driven by the countless heart-wrenching conversations they’ve had over the course of years of canvassing and phonebanking about the systemic injustices millions of Americans face every single day — and they believe that the only way out is by building an organized multiracial working class.
They now live in Poughkeepsie, and when they’re not working they can be found getting into passionate debates with their cat about meal sizes, religiously listening to history podcasts, and cooking the same 3 meals with rotating sets of vegetables.
