The CCEJ hosted its Annual Gene Lentzner Human Relations Awards Celebration on October 15, 2015.  This past year’s honorees were:

Bill Cruikshank, Executive Director, Meals on Wheels Long Beach

Jessica Quintana, Executive Director/President Centro C.H.A.

Matthew A. Saldana, Principal, LBUSD

 

All were recognized for their continued commitment to social justice, human relations, promoting intergroup cooperation and building better communities across ethnic and religious lines at a “grass roots” level.

The Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force was also honored with the City of Long Beach Human Dignity Award for their tireless work in ending human trafficking.

A big thank you to everyone who donated, attended and supported.
