“Ms. De Appolonio was an exemplary and informative speaker. Her relaxed and confident speaking style was not only inclusive and welcoming to our students, but also left most of them feeling most empowered and enlightened as to what their rights and responsibilities are under the law. Thank you NJSBF!.”
