Breakfast Briefing  |  June 24th 2021

This morning, PRWeek's Pride in PR list is honoring Precious Brady-Davis, associate regional communications director for grassroots environmental group Sierra Club. Earlier in her career, Brady-Davis was youth outreach coordinator at Center on Halsted, the largest LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. During her tenure, she launched a $1.6 million CDC HIV prevention grant, which provided outreach, education, youth programming and testing services to over 3,000 young African-American and Latinx gay, bi and trans youth. Check out our Q&A with Brady-Davis here

Brent Colburn is leaving Princeton for the University of California. Colburn has been Princeton University’s VP of communications and public affairs since 2017. He is stepping down from his position at the end of the summer to join the University of California’s office of the president as SVP for external relations and communications.  On Wednesday night, Colburn tweeted about his move.

President Joe Biden has laid out a "comprehensive strategy" to stop gun crime. It will target law-breaking gun dealers, provide federal resources to police departments for gun-crime enforcement and allow communities to repurpose millions of dollars of federal COVID-19 relief funding for programs proven to prevent gun violence. Addressing gun dealers who "willfully" break the law, Biden said, "We will find you and we'll seek your license to sell guns. We'll make sure you can't sell death and mayhem on our streets."

A post showed up on John McAfee’s Instagram page moments after he was reported dead. The post was an image that just showed a black letter “Q” on a white background and appears to be a reference to the QAnon movement, which the controversial antivirus software magnate tweeted about several times over the past few years. The post and all other photos on McAfee's Instagram account have since been deleted. Spanish authorities believe McAfee committed suicide in prison after a court approved his extradition to the U.S. on charges of tax evasion. He was also wanted in Belize for the murder of his neighbor.
