The 53rd annual Lynchburg Humanitarian Awards Presentation will take place on Thursday, May 27, 2021.
With a deep commitment to the safety and well-being of the community, VCIC’s leadership has made the decision to transition this year’s Humanitarian Awards presentation to a virtual event.
Under the leadership of Richard Tugman (Interim President and CEO, Centra), the following individuals will be honored:
The Humanitarian Award of the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities is presented to those individuals who have demonstrated a personal commitment to the promotion of respect and understanding among people of diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. On occasion, the organization may bestow the Jeffrey B. Spence Award for Interfaith Understanding to individuals who have conducted exceptional work in the area of interfaith understanding. The Distinguished Merit Award recognizes corporations or community organizations for their humanitarian work.
