San Diego, CA – Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer welcomed attendees at the 30th Annual YMCA of San Diego County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast this morning that presented a prominent San Diegan with the 2015 Human Dignity Award.

About 1,200 community leaders attended the usually sold-out breakfast to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

It also honored at least one San Diegan who exemplified the late civil rights leader’s work to build an inclusive world where every person has an equal opportunity to thrive. Past winners include local pastors, Southeast San Diego community activist Jewell Hooper, and late Padres great Tony Gwynn and his wife Alicia.
