James Cersonsky

writer, organizer, counter-tourist.
James Cersonsky is a 23-year old writer, youth media organizer, and former labor organizer. He lives in New York, but treks out to New Haven and Philly when he can. Students and young people, he says, should have a common space for spreading media and telling their own stories—which are too often told for them. {Young}ist is the place! You can follow him on twitter @Cersonsky.
