NCCJ logo with text underneath that states, "Citation Award Dinner: An Evening of Connection, Compassion, and Community."

The board of directors of NCCJ of the Piedmont Triad invites you to join us VIRTUALLY at the 54th Annual Citation Award Dinner.

Like so many events in our community and across the country, NCCJ’s Citation Award Dinner is happening virtually this year. The Citation Award Dinner is the Triad’s largest annual event dedicated to diversity and inclusion. It’s also NCCJ’s biggest community program and our largest fundraiser, bringing in nearly 50% of the funds we need to fuel our work throughout the year.

On November 11, people from across the Triad will gather virtually – physically distant, but in solidarity as a community – to reaffirm our shared commitment to respect and inclusion. Together, we will honor two local leaders, Mary Humphrey Kendrick of Greensboro and Rev. Dr. Frank K. Thomas of High Point, and celebrate the extraordinary work they’ve undertaken to fight bias, bigotry and racism and build a better community for all of us – not just some of us.

Will you join us on November 11 to recognize these exceptional leaders and show your support for NCCJ’s mission and work?

Here’s everything you’ll need to know to pledge your support and join us for this virtual celebration:
