Our Executive Director recently visited our client, Charles Little, at work. He is employed as a safety coordinator. Pictured with them is Charles’ supervisor, Teresa Valentin.
Carlos Castillo, Consulate General, Dominican Republic, and Director, Coalition of Latin American Consuls in New York, met with NJRC/JCETP partners, staff, and clients this week to discuss the needs of foreign-born reentry clients. Clients need legal services and identification as they reintegrate back into society, and we had a meaningful discussion about ways to improve their reentry process going forward.
Thank you to Consulate General Castillo, Union City Mayor Brian Stack, Mercedes Joaquin, Director of Community Relations, UCBOE; Senator Sandra Cunningham, Dr. Gina Diaz, West New York Health Department; Dr. Connie Sensor, Director, School Nurse Program, Rutgers School of Nursing, Newark; Johnny Torres, Director, Save Latin America, our clients, and staff for such a powerful meeting.
