We Blew the Roof Off!

Over 600 people attended the New York Care Congress –making it the largest Care Congress in the country! And JFREJ turned out a whopping 100 people! We were hoping that the Care Congress would kick-off the Caring Across Generations Campaign here in New York. Instead, it blew the roof off! The stadium was packed to the brim with people, excitement, and vision; justice felt closer than ever before.
