Hi! My name is Leeza Kuznetsov and I am a co-moderator of GovReaders. I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. My interest in civics stems from my government and politics teachers at school, who showed me the importance of being an active and educated citizen, regardless of whether you want to “go into” politics or not. They proved to me that I have tremendous political efficacy and that I can make a change. I am so grateful to them – but they’d tell me the best way to express this gratitude is to facilitate the change that I want to see in my country. GovReaders is a part of my effort to do exactly that. Follow me on twitter for GovReaders updates!

Hello everyone! My name is Faith Cummings, and I am a co-moderator of GovReaders. I live in Virginia. Follow me on twitter for GovReaders updates! I live in Northern Virginia. My interest in government stems from my AP Government class, both in school and online, where I had amazing teachers who taught me the importance of being informed and the power my voice has. Social justice work has become a recent passion of mine starting around the time of peak corona as I have found myself having the time to really dive into learning about the inequalities facing our nation today. As I began educating myself, my eyes were opened. I have realized just how privileged I am being able to, up until this point, “stay out of politics” and remain insulated from the blatant and gross injustices plaguing communities. For so many social justice work is necessary to survive, but for others it can be ignored. That disparity and the present injustices break my heart and motivate me to keep learning and using my voice (and ears!!) to fight for change.
