Diversity Trainer, Former Director of Todos
Hugh worked with New Bridges (a youth-oriented camp dealing with diversity issues) in Oakland, California, along with Victor. I chose him because he had a sense of fairness in him that came across when the moment got heated and polarized. During the filming, I sensed that David Christensen listened to Hugh because of his compassion and his willingness to be honest with him about the experiences of Latinos in this country. One of the things that Hugh mentioned after the filming was that he came to the filming feeling burnt out about diversity work and left feeling hopeful and energized.
