“This year’s recipients are yet among the most unique class we’ve recognized,” said Irby. “They range from political to corporate and from municipal to religion.  Each of our 2022 Legend Among Us recipients are leading the way to paths that reveal diversity and opportunity.  Each recipient has experiences that have broken barriers the once prevented promises of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. They have in many cases sacrificed their own livelihoods to create a better space for everyone.  What they have achieved at this point in history will forever remain a legacy,” expressed Irby.
