Dear [recipient's name]:

I am writing to you confidentially to advise you of a serious situation that has arisen in our office. On repeated recent occasions, my office mate and I have been subjected to inappropriate behavior from our co-workers that involves racial discrimination. We have repeatedly told our co-workers that this is not acceptable. We have also asked them to stop this behavior, but they have continued.

I am seeking your help in resolving this matter quickly so that we can return to having a pleasant working environment where we can all complete our projects without unnecessary interference or stress. Please respond to my letter as soon as possible so that we can discuss this serious matter. Thank you for promptly addressing this.

Sincerely,

 

[Signature]
