Heymans Receive Champion Award from NewFounders

Vicki and Bruce Heyman were honored to receive the Champion Award at NewFounders‘ inaugural Awards Dinner in May. Nearly 100 community leaders and political activists—including some of the inspiring Parkland students–filled the room. Bruce spoke to them in their acceptance speech: “We want to walk beside you, amplifying your messages, helping you to innovate, and encouraging you to connect your communities. As new leaders, you are the future, especially those that stand for problem-solving, diversity, and accessibility in politics.”

Vicki closed out with a call to action: “All of us here in this room are some part activist, some part activator, and some part champion. Find your role, your unique combination, and own it. Because we need to dig into all of our parts to create an inclusive future together.”
