OAAA Everyday Heroes

To recognize 50 individuals across the state of New Mexico who have done exceptional work in their communities in the areas of economics, education, health and community development improving the lives of African American families. Awardees were presented recognition, as a surprise, among co-workers, partnering organizations, friends and families. The communities partnered with OAAA to identify individuals who make personal sacrifices for their communities, often without recognition.
