Why are you a CVH member?
I was at a community event where I met the organizer for Newburgh at the time. We started talking, and she told me about organizing – I didn't know what that was at first. That one conversation lead to me to be a part of CVH to this day.
I was drawn to CVH when I heard about the welfare campaign. It inspired me to want to work alongside women to build them up.
CVH also helped me navigate housing rights and advocate for myself. I learned how to empower others by bringing legal services that I met through CVH to my own events to help tenants understand their rights.
