Speechless in the Press


Established in 2009, Catch the Next is a national, award-winning college readiness and completion organization committed to increasing equitable outcomes in higher education.


There is a basic rule of holding an elected office: to help those who do not always know they have a voice. In addition, helping the most vulnerable among us—our children—to find their voice is as noble a goal as one can find.  The work is underway, but there remains much to do.


The idea for the book series came about during Garcia’s time at Princeton, when he joined a club called “Speak with Style,” and met one of his mentors, Matt Eventoff, an advisor for the student organization.   


Assemblyman Anthony Verrelli joined Interim Principal Dana Williamson at Joyce Kilmer School in Trenton to present several-dozen donated copies of “Speechless,” — a children’s book about the importance finding your voice and speaking up for what you believe in.


Although Speechless is a children’s book, Assemblyman Verrelli believes the message can relate to all ages, especially during the limited amount of in-person peer discussions we are all lacking throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
