More about The Suzy and Wally Marks Jr. z"l 

Trailblazer Award:

 

 

 

 

NewGround named the award after Suzy and her late husband Wally Marks Jr. z"l. (In Hebrew, the z"l signifies zikhrono levrakhah meaning "may his memory be for blessing"). They have long been one step ahead of the trends to usher us all toward a more just society.  Back in 2006 when Muslim-Jewish relations were at their most toxic levels, Suzy and Wally had the foresight to seed fund the NewGround fellowship, a leadership training opportunity to equip young professionals with the skills, resources, and relationships needed to strengthen Muslim Jewish relations.  Today, NewGround is now an independent organization housed at Los Angeles City Hall in the Human Relations Commission.
