Our Distinguished Speakers
Jaime Lewis writes, speaks and podcasts about the good life in California. That typically means food, drink, and travel, as seen in her multiple food columns, her podcast CONSUMED, and speaking engagements. Jaime also makes a point of discovering where cultural markers like food, drink and travel are inaccessible to folks. She presses for diversity, inclusion, and discovery in her work, including the short documentary she produced with RACE Matters SLO called "Restrictions Apply," which explores how racism in the housing market has shaped the "happiest city in North America."
In 2016, San Luis High, USC, and SF State graduate Courtney Haile co-founded R.A.C.E. Matters, a grassroots organization that amplifies matters of racial justice and centers Black voices. Now their Executive Director, she has been a driving force for R.A.C.E. Matters’ creative endeavors, cultural programs and special events. Courtney is a producer on short documentary Restrictions Apply, about San Luis Obispo’s history of housing discrimination.
The Coalition provides educational programs and resources to facilitate and advance the efforts of our affiliated individuals and organizations in order to promote and advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
