Nohely Peraza Steals the Spotlight on NBC News Coverage

On August 5, 2015, SVUDL Board Chair Jennie Savage escorted SVUDL debater, Nohely Peraza, to a fundraiser for Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. In addition to meeting the candidate, NBC News coverage of the event offered Nohely the chance to shine and share her eloquent thoughts on immigration reform. Moments like these are a perfect example of why we do what we do and are inspired to reach more youth in East San Jose and East Palo Alto. 

I want more immigrants to have the chance to demonstrate that they can bring so much to this country to the economy, to the communities…

SVUDL is honored to support inspiring youth like Nohely - and so proud of Jennie Savage for helping make this moment happen. Watch Nohely steal the show in the last 30 seconds of this clip from NBC news - Nohely on NBC News
