El sábado, Enero 16, 2021 la comunidad SWAG dijo adiós a nuestra querida amiga y líder, Joan Canton. Ella fue una visionaria y mentora para SWAG y una luchadora por el bienestar de su comunidad, especialmente sus niños. SWAG honra y celebra su vida, y su legado vive en nuestro trabajo y nuestros corazones.

Tal vez no todos estamos en el mismo barco, pero todos estamos en la misma tormenta.
