“I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for continuing to work with us/me with Carlos and Bluz. The program they are part of is by far the best and hardest program we have on campus period. We cover topics such as domestic abuse, homelessness, human rights/womens rights/rights in general/addiction, suicide, LGBTQ topics and so much more. Please know how much they mean to this program and what an incredible influence they are and what their words have been to those who walk through our program and those who are behind the scene putting the program together. It is a blessing working with you/Mike Pavlov and of course Carlos and Bluz. Thank you!” –Erica Schwartz, Rutgers University- Camden
