Join The National Federation for Just Communities of Western New York, Inc. for Breakfast and a "Community Conversation" with Ms. Virginia Walden Ford,  the woman behind the critically acclaimed Moving Picture Institute feature film, "Miss Virginia".  

The motion picture "Miss Virginia" is inspired by the story of Virginia Walden Ford, a struggling single mother from a low-income neighborhood in Washington, DC.  Virginia Walden Ford fought to create a scholarship program for her at-risk son and children like him.
