With the Scars and Spiritual Pain of Racism and Bigotry felt by many we often seek for solutions for healing for Social Resolve and Productivity. While there is still suffering, during the storm we can gravitate to anchors of is quite pleasant to reflect on San Diego’s Welcoming Multicultural Environments that nurture Racial Harmony with Equality and Community STOP THE HATE. As a native San Diegan I’ve participated in programs like Camp Anytown that aimed to STOP THE HATE by sharing personal experiences about race and promote cultural sensitivity. At Camp Anytown we learned of our friend’s personal experience and how to be sensitive to how we treat people and to stand up for ourselves and cohorts against bias and discrimination.
Currently places like the Jacobs Center at Euclid houses a vast Multicultural Environment that really STOPS THE HATE . The Jacobs center was created in 1995 by Joe and Vi Jacobs the owners and namesake of Jacobs Engineering for “Education to Employment” and “Community Engagement”. The Jacobs Center houses organizations like RISE San DIEGO, a Diverse Leadership Development Program that coaches future leaders for success in the Non-Profit arena. RISE is home of the RISE Urban Leadership Fellowship (I’m a Fellow) and the ILIA Awards (Inclusion Leadership in Action). Rise uses its forum to promote racial healing in peace through active engagement. Catholic Charities and Mana de San Diego a Superior Organization of Latinas in Leadership share the Jacobs Center along with Homestart a housing assistance that helped my family program and Multi-Cultural Health Foundation. We are so grateful that the Jacobs Center embodies diversity and progress. The center encourages respect of diverse cultures and healing after discrimination in the workplace. The organizations work separately and in conjunction with each other to improve society.
