The 57th annual Tidewater Humanitarian Awards Dinner took place on Thursday, March 18, 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 William L. Nusbaum (Williams Mullen), the following individuals were honored:


Yvonne T. Allmond

Ruth T. Jones Nichols
Lawrence L. Steingold


Hampton Roads Community Foundation

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.
