Associated Black Charities (ABC) President and CEO Diane Bell-McKoy was recently honored by The Center for Urban Families (CFUF) with its Urban Visionary Award.

Additional awardees included Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund, Peter Edelman, a Georgetown Law Professor and Shawn Dove of the Open Society Foundations’ Campaign for Black Male Achievement. The awards ceremony was held April 11 at the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore.

“I am humbled and extremely honored to be recognized by CFUF and to be among such incredible national leaders that are committed to closing the gaps in access to the resources needed to restore America’s families,” Bell-McKoy said in a statement. “This ceremony is not only an opportunity for us to celebrate the contributions made by individuals to the well-being of children and families, but allows us to honor the transformative work being done by CFUF in Baltimore and elsewhere.”
