4th Annual Passion Meets the Road Awards Dinner

"EACH YEAR WE LIKE TO TAKE TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE THOSE WHO TYPICALLY GO UNNOTICED, YET WHOSE WORK ETHIC IS UNWAVERING...”  

Vision Towards Peace LLC (VTP) and Passion Meets the Road (PMR) is a partnership to forever be intertwined.  It is through passion that VTP claims its beginnings.  Erica L Upshaw Givner, VTP’s founder and CEO provides a safe place where dialogue can replace stigma and judgment.  Finding her calling through social work, it allows her to do what she loves each day.  Passion Meets the Road allows VTP to acknowledge those who go unnoticed, yet remain undeterred in their community commitment.  Through PMR, we have been able to make lasting partnerships with hundreds of participating agencies and organizations, reach thousands of families and gain momentum with new ventures.
