What People Say

I am hopeful for our community, YFJ is the voice we need to help move our community forward. Less talk more action!

Jamika Buchanan

The newly organized YFJ embodies the energy and sense of community that has already enriched Yorktown. As long time town residents who, in 2019 ran for Town Board to help forge change, we are both pleased and proud to know that this grassroots organization, born right here in our town, is poised to lead us into the future.
