Dr. Bernadett looks forward to being a sponsor of the upcoming CCEJ Breakfast and Convening scheduled for March 8, 2024, in Long Beach, CA. A day of learning, dialogue, and reflection will unite people in pursuing a fair and equitable community. This event extends the tradition of CCEJs annual community breakfast, fostering unity among individuals of diverse identities with a shared vision for an inclusive community.
The Bernadett family has long supported the California Conference for Equality and Justice because its mission aligns closely with the goals of Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife, Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett. They share a vision of offering everyone service, education, and a secure learning environment, regardless of their family's financial circumstances. This alignment is evident as the CCEJ mission is focused on empowering individuals, both youth and adults, to drive change for equity and justice in communities.
