Recently, NationBuilder, (, put a call out to the community asking: “who are the leaders keeping our families, neighborhoods, and communities together right now? In this unfathomable year, who is helping us get through and helping us heal? Who is showing up every single day to give what they can to those around them?” We are thrilled to announce that one of the names submitted and selected is our very own Crystal Feliciano!

Crystal was nominated to be one of 2020’s top ten #EverydayLeaders by West Trenton resident, Kadja Manuel, who emphasized Crystal’s many contributions to the city of Trenton. As a result of her being selected, she as well as the other 9 honorees were each given a very special gift—a personalized song from singer/songwriter Jon Lajoie “(you may know him from Wolfie’s Just Fine, the League, or from Lego Movie 2).” Crystal will also receive $500 which can be given directly to her or donated on her behalf to a nonprofit of her choice along with $1,000 of NationBuilder service that she can use herself or give to someone else.

I am so proud of Crystal and this major accomplishment and wanted to make sure that we celebrate her here on Peterson’s Breaking News! Crystal not only is a reporter with PBN but she is also a very good friend of mine and I am so happy to share in this moment with her and would love it if you all join me in congratulating her!
