This week, I sent the below email to the team at San Diego Organizing Project — the same week of the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia. We had just spent 1.5 hours of staff meeting discussing the role people who are white have in acknowledging their privilege – and how little it’s done. From there, the conversation turned into how we would host a press conference in two days where interfaith leaders would unite and denounce racism and white supremacy in San Diego County.
I admit – we’re lucky at Mixte that at the end of the day we can leave our office knowing that we did everything we could today to stand up for human rights.
That’s not accidental because we run our public relations firm on values and a mission.
