Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability

April 2, 2016 Fairmead Community & Friends attended a workshop in the community of Calwa in Fresno on “How a bill is introduced into Law”, sponsored by Leadership Counsel and Justice Accountability.  The information was easy to understand by the way it was presented and it was also inspiring to listen and talk to other San Joaquin volunteer community leaders that advocate for their disadvantaged communities just as we do. fb_111537 fb_111710 fb_123052

Thank you to our friends, directors Phoebe Seaton and Veronica Garibay of Leadership Counsel and Justice Accountability for helping us make a difference in our communities.
