HOUSTON, Texas -- It's always great when a group of people can unite for one common cause.
"We're all here because we want to stamp out hate in our community," said Katy Caldwell, CEO of Legacy Community Health Services.
The Anti-Defamation League hosted "Houston In Concert Against Hate" which is an event that pays homage to American Civil Rights and those who work tirelessly to make a difference.
Some of the night's honorees were Dr. Edith Irby Jones, the first African American admitted to the University of Arkansas school of medicine, and Dr. Renu Khator, the University of Houston System's first woman chancellor.
Khator also serves as president of the University of Houston.
Organizations like Legacy Community Health Services were recognized, too.
