Jonathan Pulphus has been selected as the 2014 Jamala Rogers Young Visionary. The selection committee was impressed by Jonathan’s activism that pre-dated his splash onto campus as a freshman at Saint Louis University. Jonathan is involved in making change on the campus through a variety of organizations as well as off campus, such as in the Justice for Mike Brown work. He is a co-founder of Tribe X, one of several organizations which have been on the ground in Ferguson engaging in non-violent protests and fighting for the demands to make police and the courts more accountable and more humane. Jonathan has demonstrated that he’s “not afraid to do unpopular work.”
