Nominate a Humanitarian
Since 1963, the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities has presented Humanitarian Awards annually to one or more persons. The Humanitarian Awards Dinners honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the promotion of respect and understanding among people of diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. On occasion, local corporations or organizations are also recognized with the Distinguished Merit Citation Award for their efforts in making Virginia’s communities more inclusive.
VCIC presents Humanitarian Awards to individuals and organizations in each of our chapter locations: Lynchburg, Peninsula, Richmond, and Tidewater. Note that honorees must reside and/or work in one of those areas of Virginia to be recognized.
