    Dear Diversity Focus Team,


    My name is Danielle and I work in Development for Left/Right, an award-winning television production company based in NYC. I am reaching to you because we are developing a captivating documentary project that will explore race, socioeconomic status, and relationships in America by profiling several different unrelated people who share a surname.


    I am writing to you in the hopes that you might be able to help spread the word about this project. We are specifically interested in profiling people and families with the last names Black, White, and Love as a way to explore contrasting perspectives and experiences in America. We have begun our search in the states where these last names are the most popular. We’re searching for people from all ethnicities, economic statuses, sexual orientations, marital statuses and education levels and thought there might be members of your community who would be unique candidates for this project.


    I would love to send you our casting announcement, which contains further information on the project and how people may apply. Might you be able to share it with your organization or through social media? Who is the best contact for this request?


    Please let me know. If you have any questions, I would be happy to discuss this project further via phone. I can be reached at (212) 695-2092, 10am – 7pm EST.


    Thank you so much for your time.


    Sincerely,

    Danielle Aranya

    I’m the new Outreach Coordinator for Green Iowa AmeriCorps, a program that provides free home energy audits and weatherizations to community members of Linn County.


    As the Outreach coordinator, I would like to discuss opportunities with you to promote our services. We are looking for new ways to reach out to community members to help them save money on their utility bills this winter. Energy audits and weatherizations are fast and simple. Energy audits consist of running a blower door test that reveals where outside air is entering the home. Once we’ve pinpointed these leaks, we weatherize the homes by caulking, foam spraying, installing door sweeps and window plastic, and more. Again, all of our services and materials are completely free of charge.
    I would also be interested in collaborating with you on future education and outreach projects. Please, let me know if there’s any way we can be involved. I would love the opportunity to talk about future opportunities to work with you.

    Hello!

    My name is Dumayi Gutierrez and I am a doctoral student here at the University of Iowa. For the past couple of years I have been studying Latino LGBT individuals and their families. What we know is this particular racial and sexual minority group experiences distress but the influences of religiosity, acculturation, gender, navigation of identities and acceptance experiences is extremely scarce.

    I am writing you to see if you could pass a recruitment flyer for the study that I could attach to an email to pass along your area so that we can gain a better perspective and learn from their experience. They are the experts in this realm and we want to learn from them.

    Thank you for your help in helping us learn about Latino LGBT individuals, their families and communities!

    Sincerely,


    Dumayi Gutierrez, M.A. MFT, Doctoral Student

    Hi

    I own a Preschool in Iowa City and I have been looking for ways to connect with families to have more diversity in our student body. If you have any ideas about helping me find ways to connect with families who are still looking for preschool for their 3-5 year olds for the fall of 2016 please let me know.

    I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

    Good morning,


    I hope you’re having a great start to the summer. I want to share with you a summary of the GoGUIDE media kit. I’m sharing with local community leaders first before I really go public in July.


    I’m so excited to have an LGBTQ publication back in business in Iowa. Of course, I can’t represent the whole state like ACCESSLINE was able to do for so many years, but I’m going to do my best for Johnson County.


    I have additional information to send. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.


    Best,

    Tim Nedoba

    Hi Diversity Focus of Cedar Rapids community,


    My name is Jennifer Watkins and I am a member of Green Iowa AmeriCorps contacting you all for an opportunity to spread environmental awareness about our program. We take pride in energy audits and serving low-income folks at little to no charge. This year we have serviced forty nine homes and provided twenty-five weatherization and in the last week we caught two gas leaks. Would it be possible to talk over the phone about possible opportunities for an education event that we teach at. Please contact me on my personal phone, 319-331-8869, or at Green Iowa AmeriCorps office phone, 319-362-2214. Thank you for you time and consideration.

    He’s not tending to the issue. He’s not calling it what it is. This is radical Islamic terrorism. This isn’t battling Germany, this isn’t battling Japan where they’re wear regalia. These are individuals who turn out and you have no clue who they are and he wouldn’t like to examine it with http://www.mylittleponycheats.com and he wouldn’t like to appropriately depict it. also, in the event that you don’t talk about it and portray it appropriately, you’re never going to take care of the issue.

    Hi, I am the HR Assistant for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. We are looking for ways to reach out and advertise our positions to a more diverse workforce. Do you know of anywhere in the Cedar Valley where we might advertise positions that reach a more diverse population? If you could give me any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it. Have a great day!

    Hello,


    I hope you’re having a great week! I still haven’t heard anything, so I wanted to reach out again and see if you have made a decision about adding our link to your website? We do provide free valuable resources and information for Mesothelioma patients and their families that the other sites do not.


    We would be happy to make a donation or place a reciprocal link for your time and our link addition.


    Please send me an email back and let me know what you think, either way.


    Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!


    Best,

    This is more of a concern. I’ve seen the news stories about new teachers today & I’m baffled about the lack of diversity in the teaching staff. I hope this is something your team looks into & contacts the district about. It’s 2015 the staff should look like the students!!!

    To whom it may concern:


    My name is Steffi Lee and I’m a new resident of the Cedar Rapids and Marion communities.


    I’ve read a lot about what Diversity Focus does and would love to get involved through volunteering and other outreach efforts. I was wondering if there was someone I could speak to about this?


    Best,
