Nominations For County YWCA’s Racial Justice Award Due April 14

The YWCA of Palm Beach County is seeking nominations for its Racial Justice Award.

Nominees for the Racial Justice Award may be an individual, civic organization, religious institution or business that has demonstrated leadership in organizing or supporting activities that reduce and/or prevent racial injustices in Palm Beach County.

The award will be presented on April 28 at the YWCA’s “Stand Against Racism” Luncheon. That event will take place at the Cohen Pavilion at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.

Jack Brewer, an advocate for racial inclusion and equality who founded and is CEO of the Brewer Group, will be the featured speaker.

Brewer, 38, was raised in Texas, where he experienced racial tensions while growing up, but he rose above the adversity to found his own company at age 19 while becoming the first member of his family to attend college, earning a degree in sports management.

Call the YWCA at (561) 640-0050, ext. 115, for more information or to request a nomination form. The deadline for submitting nominations is 4 p.m. Friday, April 14. To learn about additional activities of the YWCA, visit
