Review for THE NATIONAL FEDERATION FOR JUST COMMUNITIES OF WESTERN NEW YORK, Buffalo, NY, USA
I've had the good fortune to have been involved with NFJC WNY for many years, both as a community member and also as a board member. The number of matters that the NFJC WNY has been involved in are innumerable but two things stand out to me. There was a controversy in our community regarding the nickname use by a local school that was considered by some to denigrate a segment of our population. The staff at the NFJCWNY worked tirelessly to provide a forum and facilate education and communication among all involved in an attempt to help resolve what was a very divisive issue. Another NFJCWNY initiative that speaks to the workk of the organization is it's annual Dash for Diversity where community individuals of all ages come together to show their commitment to building a diverse community by participating in a run/walk event that definity helps to build unity in our community. Each year I enjoy having my very young grandchildren be a part of this event, not only for the many fun activities, but hopefully to also help them see the very good things that can be achieved when we work together to be inclusive community that cares about each other.
Thank you for your continued leadership and support as we all continue to make WNY a more just and inclusive community for all!
