I have enjoyed participating in the NFJC Dash for Diversity. All three of our children participated in the activities, games and running. It was well organized and provided family friendly, community experience.
The NFJC is an organization that in my years of human services, have been a vital resource in education, advocacy, and social acceptance regardless of race, gender, ability, or faith. They are a leaders in Community Relations and building bridges to understanding through social dialogues.
NFJC of WNY is a great organization doing much needed work!! It's been an honor to serve as a Board member. The staff are true professionals and have been great stewards of my donations and contributions to both maximize benefit to the community while sustaining the organization's vital programs and its long-term health.
Over my four years of involvement with the NFJC I have raised my awareness of the issues in the WNY community with respect to tolerance and inclusion as well as how I can have a positive influence on my neighbors. The greatest impact has been with my family -- as a result of taking the opportunity to invite them to a variety of NFJC events perceptions of ethnic and racially diverse individuals has changed for the better.
