Groups making a difference

DFER:  Joe Williams and a strong board continue to push the Ds to support real accountability and real choice. 

CA Charter Assoc:   Jeb Wallace has kicked CCSA advocacy into high gear—both CA and national.

ConnCAN: we’d be in a much different place if every state had an Alex Johnston and an advocacy group like ConnCAN

UVSO:  I’ve been visiting community-based organizations providing youth & family services like Unified Vailsburg in Newark, as well as groups in Queens (Sports & Arts, Sunnyside Community Services, SAYA), Bronx (East Side House), and Brooklyn, and continue to be impressed with the caliper of leadership, the commitment to community, and the entrepreneurship despite a funding crisis.
