The 53rd annual Peninsula Humanitarian Awards Dinner took place on Thursday, February 25, 2021.

With a deep commitment to the safety and well-being of the community, VCIC’s leadership made the decision to transition this year’s Humanitarian Awards presentation to a virtual event.  

Under the leadership of Guy G. Levy, the following individuals were 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.
