This is a wonderful video! Thank you Jade and Veronica. Break Through the Static is doing amazing work in our community. And there's ways to get involved. Break Through The Static needs donations and volunteers, as does the larger organization of which breakthroughthestatic.org is a part, Project Safety Net - psnpaloalto.org.

Thank you again for bringing this important information into our community! Once people hear the message, they get it.
