The Food and Beverage Industries have been supporting the work of the California Conference for Equality and Justice for more than 45 years. Our annual Humanitarian Awards dinner raises funds to support groundbreaking programs for youth and adults that raise awareness, heal conflicts, and bridge differences.
This year’s honorees had the opportunity to meet youth in CCEJ’s programs and learn how they’re building more inclusive communities.

In April, Michael Ajemian and Kevin Arceneaux visited CCEJ’s Building Bridges Camp to meet youth participants and joined discussions about addressing prejudice and discrimination in their schools and communities.

 

In July, Bryan Kaltenbach attended CCEJ’s Summer Youth Leadership Institute graduation. CCEJ youth leaders spent their summer learning about community issues and building skills to be facilitators at Building Bridges camp.

 

In June, some members of our dedicated Humanitarian Awards Dinner Committee met to plan the event (L-R): Bob Paul, Pat Posey, Jerry Whitmore, Dave Dimond, Kimmy Maniquis (CCEJ Executive Director), Bryan Kaltenbach, Kevin Arceneaux, Willie Crocker, Dave Grosse, Mary Crocker, Kevin Davis, Subriana Pierce, Michelle Cassatt, Michael Ajemian, Andy Copeland, Braden Phillips (CCEJ Board), and Katherine McIlquham (CCEJ Director of Special Events).

Will we see you on September 4th?
