An officer of Mira Mesa Shopping Center, Elliot Feuerstein has over 40 years of experience in real estate and shopping center development and management in San Diego, CA. His experience includes collaborating with architects on shopping center designs, working with the authorities for construction approvals, and overseeing contractors on various company projects. Elliot Feuerstein is involved with and supports a range of nonprofits, including the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Founded in 1971, SPLC aims to provide an avenue for racial justice. It partners with the community to work against discrimination and fight for human rights. Founded by Joseph Levin Jr., it also works to protect the rights and expand the inclusion of minority groups in the community, including people living with disabilities, the LGBTQ community, women, prisoners, immigrants, and migrant workers.
SPLC employs several strategies and programs to further its mission. One is the Intelligence Project, which tracks and exposes the activities of hate groups and extremists within the community, such as white supremacists. Another, the Learning for Justice Program, offers free resources to parties working with children and young people from kindergarten through high school.
The beneficiaries of the program's resources include caregivers, educators, counselors, and teachers. The resources assist them in supplementing academic curricula, creating civil and inclusive communities at their places of work, and instilling similar values in children and youth to create a more tolerant, diverse, and inclusive community.
