At their annual Freedom Fund Dinner last month, The New Britain NAACP branch recognized influential leaders in the Greater New Britain Community. CMHA's own Christopher Porcher, Assistant Director and New Britain Mayoral candidate, received the Political Representation Award for his involvement and commitment to community.
As quoted in the New Britain Herald, Porcher says he hopes to lead by example and inspire more youth to be involved in the community. To that point, he added, "I'm already seeing a lot more young people wanting to do more and asking questions, which is a good first step."
"I feel great seeing them being involved because they're our future. It's my honor to be able to inspire them."
