Diversity Richmond is often a resource for the print, broadcast and digital media when called upon to serve as a voice on behalf of the community, or to direct journalists to other community leaders they need.
President and Executive Director Bill Harrison is a recognized and trusted commentator on our behalf. In 2014, an op ed piece he wrote, “Gay Marriage, the Civil Rights Issue of Our Time.” appeared in the Richmond Times Dispatch just days before the historic ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
At the annual PRSA Awards last year, Harrison’s piece not only took first place in the editorial category, but won Best in Show against over 150 other entries. The competition judges were highly impressed, stating, “Superb piece of writing. The case was clearly argued and written in terms that any person could relate to, regardless of his or her stance in the issue.”
