Be a Friend Project Promotes the “Upstanders” in the Hudson Valley
Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the award-winning public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.
This week’s guests are Jennifer Young and Heather Pinieri from the Be a Friend Project. September is Suicide Prevention Month. We discuss their bullying prevention programs, their recent Spirit of Matthew Award recognition, and the inspirational musical, “It’s Easy” that started the whole program.
We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Jennifer, Heather and myself here on In Touch.
