Join the AFTNJ Committee On Political Education (COPE) Scholarship Committee the first annual AFTNJ Nick Yovnello Social Justice Scholarship Awards Brunch. We are proud to present the first scholarship to Corinne Reilly-Ferretto, a student activist from New Jersey City University.
|” Over the past two years I have discovered a lot about myself through organizing. A colleague invited me to a NJ United Students meeting, exposing me to the world of social justice. I walked into a giant room with a projector showing an agenda, students using Robert’s rules to debate issues, and elections for a new executive board. I was amazed. I had never seen people my age actually work productively together to try to change things as whole for our state…It inspired me to be active for the rights of all students.” Corinne Reilly-Ferretto|
