About Local Heroes
For over 20 years, the Local Heroes initiative has recognized activists, educators, community leaders and visionaries – the ones doing the critical work in our region that often goes unrecognized. The project salutes the accomplishments and services of men and women who are making a significant impact in Southern California communities. This year the KCET and PBS SoCal Community Advisory Board (CAB) was invited to nominate 15 men and women as finalists who are making a difference in our region. The CAB will be selecting two remarkable Heroes from those finalists whose profiles appear below. The stories of the two 2019 Local Heroes who are selected will be broadcast in January.
About the Community Advisory Board:
KCET and PBS SoCal’s community engagement efforts with its viewers and supporters would not be possible without the help of the Community Advisory Board (CAB). This active group of volunteer leaders is the station’s eyes and ears in the community as well as plays an integral part in the planning and implementation of many outreach programs.
We are currently seeking sponsorship for the Local Heroes program. If you are interested in helping to showcase remarkable individuals in our community through the program, please contact Amanda Martin at email@example.com.
