52nd Annual Humanitarian Awards
Honoring Jay Barth and Sherece West-Scantlebury
On Tuesday, April 14, at the Statehouse Convention Center, Just Communities of Arkansas will hold its 52nd Humanitarian Awards Dinner. We will have the pleasure of honoring Jay Barth and Sherece West-Scantlebury, two community leaders whose commitment to the betterment of our state and our people truly embody the spirit of the word humanitarian.
JCA has worked since 1964 to bring our community together and encourage a deeper level of respect and appreciation for humanity. The Humanitarian Awards is the premier fundraiser for JCA, ensuring that we continue to build inclusive communities through training, advocacy, and celebration so that every person is valued, every voice is heard, and everyone has a fair chance to succeed.
The Dinner will also provide an opportunity for guests to learn more about JCA's programs, especially Ourtown for Teens, a summer residential leadership camp for high school students.
About the Dinner
The Humanitarian Awards Dinner is JCA's signature gala, bringing together friends old and new, past honorees, and supporters of our mission to build communities where every person is valued, every voice is heard and everyone has a fair chance to succeed.
About the Humanitarian Awards
Since 1963, JCA has presented Humanitarian Awards annually to one or more people at our Humanitarian Awards Dinner. These awards honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the promotion of respect and understanding among people of diverse racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. These honorees have promoted justice and inclusion through their work and community service. In addition to honoring outstanding community members, the Humanitarian Awards Dinner also serves as a platform to highlight the mission, programs and continued success of JCA.
