Reverend Al Sharpton, founder of the National Action Network, hosted the standing room only 2014 African American Vanguard Awards reception recently. The event was created by Lord, Bush & Randolph, LLC. (LBR) to recognize African American’s who have made a positive impact on the City of Los Angeles and surrounding communities. This year LBR, in partnership with the Los Angeles Chapter (NAN-LA), honored the achievments of LA’s most prominent and influential African Americans.
Sponsored by SEIU Local 721 and Macy’s, some of the honorees in attendance included: Judge Greg Mathis, Congressmember Karen Bass, Compton Mayor, LA County Supervisor Mark Riley-Thomas, Apostle Beverly “BAM” Crawford, Pastor of Bible Enrichment Fellowship International Church, Macy’s Carol Jackson VP of Government and Public Affairs and Union Bank’s Julius Robinson, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility, to name a few. In addition, the group celebrated Rev. Al’s 60th birthday.
“The National Action network of Los Angeles is pleased to partner with Robert Bush of LBR on this event. We are grateful that our national leader Rev. Sharpton has taken time out his busy schedule to join us as we pay tribute to the most powerful and influential leaders in Los Angeles.” Said Rev. Tulloss, Western Regional Dir. & NAN-LA President.
