National Campaign Asks Country's Youth "What Does Equality Mean to You?"




  Generation Z Speaks Out on Equality

National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights Spurs National Youth Dialogue


NEW YORK, NY - The National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights (NCRCR) launched a national contest, intended to draw thousands of young people into a dialogue on civil rights. The contest, entitled "What Does Equality Mean to You?" asks youth ages 14 - 18 across the United States to define equality from their unique perspectives. 

This contest seeks the opinions of a generation entering civic life. "Equality has meant different things to different people, and those meanings have changed time." said Marianne Engelman Lado, NCRCR Board Member. "We invite America's young people to share their perspectives and tell us what equality means to them." Participants can submit either a written entry or a visual image such as a drawing, cartoon or photograph. The contest will run until April 12, 2010.  Contest winners will receive prizes including a $500 cash award, and a trip for two to New York City. Entries will be judged by a panel of high-profile judges, including Congressman Keith Ellison (MN), Congressman Gregory Meeks (NY), and Benjamin Todd Jealous - President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
