Join us to honor impactful advocacy!

Get excited for an empowering morning celebrating advocates and the role they play in uplifting children across NYC.

Join us for CCC’s Annual Celebration Breakfast on Tuesday, October 22, 2024 beginning at 7:30am. This year’s breakfast will take place in-person at 583 Park Ave and will honor inspiring advocates working to uplift child and family well-being in NYC, including Richard R. Buery, Jr., CEO, Robin Hood; CCC Board Member Connie Christensen; and The Healthy Minds, Healthy Kids Youth and Caregiver Council. The event will also feature keynote speaker Jonathan Blitzer, New Yorker staff writer, whose just published book, Everyone Who is Gone is Here, is “an epic, heartbreaking, and deeply reported history of the disastrous humanitarian crisis at the southern border told through the lives of the migrants forced to risk everything and the policymakers who determine their fate.” We previously honored Blitzer with a Samuel Peabody Award for his work in The New Yorker.
