54th Annual Whitney M. Young Jr. Awards Dinner

The Greater Phoenix Urban League’s 54th Annual Whitney M. Young Jr Awards dinner was held on Friday, May 11, 2018. Each year, the award is given to those whose everyday actions exemplify the principles for which Whitney M. Young, Jr. stood, exhibiting genuine concern for the community in promoting and celebrating diversity, racial harmony, and social and economic equality. This year we honored more Arizona locals that have done an exceptional job supporting our community and helping those in need.
