2019 Gateway Globe Awards Humanitarian of the Year Award

The final award went to Anna Crosslin of the International Institute, named as the Humanitarian of the Year by the World Affairs Council and presented by Betsy Cohen. Ms. Crosslin’s work with the International Institute has a pronounced impact on the refugee and immigrant community in St. Louis. Her work impacts over 6,000 foreign-born people in the St. Louis area, and looks over a staff of 80 people to work with these individuals. Ms. Crosslin wanted to say that the work of the International Institute could only be possible because of all the people who are committed and passionate about the Institute’s mission. She also wanted to emphasize that the award was not meant for her or the Institute but instead for the whole community.
