SAMPLE SCRIPT (make this your own): I am writing to convey my appreciation for your sponsorship of the Carroll Citizens for Racial Equality Conference on May 5th. I believe in the importance of honest and respectful dialogue on issues of racial, ethnic, religious, and other differences. It is important to learn from the diverse cultures that are part of Carroll County. I am a Carroll County citizen and I deeply appreciate your service to our community, especially your continual efforts to provide our citizens opportunities to learn and grow. Thank you for your involvement in the CCRE Conference:  “What is All This Talk About Privilege?”

[If you feel inspired, please add a sentence or two about your appreciation for the specific organization or adapt the above paragraph to the organization. For example, change “citizens” to “children” or “students” when writing to CCPS]

ADDITIONAL ACTION: Reach out to show support for the event’s other sponsors such as the NAACP, St. Paul’s UCC, the Zepp Center, PFLAG, and the Carroll County Human Relations Commission. If you haven't already, please consider attending the conference in a show of support. This event is amazing each and every year! Registration deadline is 4/28/17

BACKGROUND INFO: Commissioner Rothschild wrote in his Carroll County Times column “Several local government funded organizations are now using their prestige to sponsor privilege propaganda in Carroll County. Unfortunately, these include county-funded nonprofits, our public schools; and our libraries. This is progressive politics at its worst”. He claims “Privilege movement is racism on steroids” and has made it his mission to encourage public scrutiny of the agencies that are supporting the CCRE Conference. This year’s conference is entitled “What’s all this talk about privilege?” and is free and open to the public. Registration deadline is 4/28/17.
