PIERRE HABIS: Hello, I’m Pierre Habis of Union Bank. Diversity is one of our most closely held values. That’s why we’re proud to honor Local Heroes in celebration of Black History Month. Let’s meet one of our honorees. ROY DIXON: I am Roy Dixon, the Bishop of the Church of God in Christ. The San Diego Organizing Project is a faith-based organization to prepare the grass roots to speak truth to power. You drop out of school, you can't get a job. What is the next step? Jail? Prison? We work on health, education, immigration, and safety in the neighborhood. We can see the change, we can see people catching onto that hope, and stepping out on faith. To see a community find its voice is amazing.
