Alicia Keys Campaigns To Restore Civil Rights


 

Grammy Award Winner Alicia Keys and Comedian Margaret Cho Join the National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights' 2010 Youth Contest

 

NEW YORK, NY - This week, the National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights (NCRCR) announced the addition of artist/humanitarian Alicia Keys and comedian/civil rights activist Margaret Cho to the panel of judges for its 2010 contest, which asks young people across the country for their views on equality.

NCRCR launched the contest entitled "What Does Equality Mean to You?" on February 12, 2010.  The contest encourages young people ages 14-18 across the country to enter into dialogue on civil rights.  "Equality has meant different things to different people, and those meanings have changed over 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 Alicia Keys, Margaret Cho, 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).
