Ed Powe, the Co-Founder and President of the Focus On Race Relations (FORR) organization, will be an honored guest this Sunday, September 11, at an awards ceremony.  He will be recognized as the recipient of the council’s 2022 Ruby Layson Award for promoting the interfaith qualities of justice, compassion and human kindness.
