A Street-Level Campaign Intends to Take on Bigotry

James Warren, New York Times, January 15, 2010


The initiative–One Chicago, One Nation–is intended to engage Muslims with broader local communities; it was unveiled Thursday night at the Cultural Center. With a Republican investment mogul and a young interfaith superstar among its strategists, the initiative seeks to deflate caricature and bigotry by melding an online film contest with community organizing and grants for multicultural partnerships.


There will be $50,000 in prizes for short videos that tell Chicago stories on diversity. Those will be broadcast on Link TV, with winners announced on June 17 at Millennium Park. {snip} Entries can be submitted to www.linktv.org/onechicago through April 23.
