The Power of Apathy: BJE Impact

"I will make it happen!" vs. "What difference will it make?"

Teen Service CorpBJE Impact has been gifted a PSA created through a collaboration of teens and Holocaust survivors as part of the Righteous Conversations Project that speaks to the Power of Apathy, and, conversely, the power of ACTION.
