The 2020 Local Heroes initiative honors the accomplishments of those who are dedicated to making a difference in the community: recognizing activists, educators, community leaders and visionaries doing critical work that often goes unrecognized in the Southern California region. The 2020 Local Heroes honorees named are Ben Caldwell, Dr. Barbara Ferrer and Tam Nguyen. This year’s three Local Heroes honorees were chosen from a group of 12 outstanding individuals nominated by KCET and PBS SoCal’s Community Advisory Board (CAB).
