Good Troublemakers Needed!

Join us as we honor the Reverend June R. Cooper for her lifelong work for social justice. Reverend Cooper is Executive Director of City Mission in Boston the oldest multi-service agency in New England and the second oldest in the United States. City Mission has served the educational, economic, and social needs of impoverished area residents since 1816. Before coming to City Mission, June managed Boston’s federal Healthy Start program, a $100m initiative that has been credited with significantly decreasing the infant mortality rate in Boston in the late 1990s. She earned a B.A. from Newton College of the Sacred Heart, a Masters of Social Planning from Boston College School of Social Work, and a Masters in Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School. She is an ordained American Baptist minister with dual standing in the United Church of Christ. June embodies the mission of the Al Filipov Peace & Justice Forum and values the promise of what can be accomplished by mobilizing people of goodwill to overcome injustice.

Following the reflections of Reverend Cooper, there will be a question and answer period. Questions may be submitted at any time during the presentation using the chat option. The moderator will review and present the questions live to Reverend Cooper for her consideration as time permits.
