Testimonial: Mia Dorantes
“I attended NCCJ ANYTOWN in October of 2016. It [NCCJ ANYTOWN] honestly changed my life for the better. Before I went, I was very quiet and I didn’t talk much about anything. ANYTOWN gave me something to be passionate about and it gave me a voice. Social Justice is now something that I can talk about for hours and hours on end.”
“A few of the other students from my school started our schools action club and I was given a leadership role. Since then we have implemented a gender-neutral bathroom, anti-bullying week, a day of silence for victims of sexual assault, and much more.”
