The Celebrating the Beat the Odds Class of 2021: A Year of Resilience Children’s Defense Fund-New York will honor eight incredibly resilient New York City high school seniors. Our scholars are stellar students, powerful community leaders, and fierce advocates. We want to invite you to help us celebrate these resilient students.
Although we celebrate each graduating class, this cohort is especially deserving of recognition. Their last two years in high school have brought more challenges than our scholars could have ever anticipated.
Graduating and starting the next chapter of their lives amid a national crisis is no easy feat. We hope to gather our community on Monday, June 28, at 6 pm to celebrate them.You can RSVP digitally to attend and support!
