Congratulations to our Founder Dr. Tristaca McCray!! Nominated for two community awards.

Dr. Tristaca McCray was nominated in two categories: Community Change Agent, which is co-presented with the University of San Diego, honors an individual who has shown dedication and action to make real, sustainable, and systemic change through the creation of innovative programs, policy, platforms, or partnerships. It recognizes the work of assisting the community’s ability to thrive in areas such as education, social enterprise, health and wellness, or advocacy.
The Anthony M. Medina People's Champion category honors an individual who has been an advocate and champion for underserved or marginalized communities. It recognizes advocacy in words and in action to bring about meaningful change for the people. The award is named in honor of the late Anthony M.
