Why Attend the Congressional Reception: Renee Koubiadis

Congressional Reception Gives NJ Residents a Chance to Speak Directly to Elected Officials

Executive Director of the Anti-Poverty Network of New Jersey, Renee Koubiadis has been a very active Congressional Reception sponsor and is helping to plan this year’s Congressional Reception. In this video, Renee discusses what she believes to be the most crucial part of the event.

“The most critical piece is having the people from our state who have housing insecurity issues and have experienced homelessness to directly speak,” says Renee.
