“I am keenly aware of the rich history and legacy behind the Silver Medallion award, and I’m honored to have been recognized by MCCJ and its Board of Directors,” Davis said. “If each of us as leaders, as citizens, and as a family, commit to a goal of constant self-questioning, I believe we will replace a mere tolerance of differences with a celebration of those differences.”

MCCJ seeks an inclusive community in which all people are treated with dignity and respect, according to their website. Their mission includes creating safe havens for dialog, training inclusive leaders, and highlighting the benefits of diversity through education, advocacy, and conflict resolution. Since 1946, MCCJ has hosted the annual Humanitarian Dinner and Awards Gala to honor outstanding leaders in Miami.

Rodriguez, MCCJ Executive Director. “His community involvement reads like an encyclopedia, speaking out on behalf of the most vulnerable, and taking extraordinary measures to build a more inclusive, welcoming, and just Miami. MCCJ is honored to award him the 2020 Silver Medallion Award.”
