The USA Network is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Characters Unite Awards. These awards are presented annually by the network in recognition of individuals who have made a difference in combating the hatred and divisions that plague our society, nation and our world. This ongoing commitment to tolerance and understanding by USA Network helps to build bridges between communities and cultures and to erase the imagined barriers between people.
Those of you who regularly visit here are aware of the frequency that I attack intolerance, hatred and exclusion by our society, our belief systems and in certain political persuasions. Through DQN In Northern Virginia, I seek to encourage an alternate viewpoint and to urge inclusion. Also, you are familiar with the fact that rarely do I ever boldface in my posts. Italics, yes; boldface, hardly. Yet, I do in the case of the Characters Unite Awards. I believe and support the USA Network's efforts to make a difference in our world.
Inspired by USA Network's iconic "Characters Welcome" brand and with the support of leading national nonprofit organizations, the ongoing campaign is dedicated to supporting activities and messaging that combat prejudice and intolerance while promoting understanding and acceptance - on- air, online and in communities across the country.
I commend USA Network in their ongoing efforts to end discrimination and to bring about inclusion. I urge those of you who feel as I do to seriously consider nominating someone that you know who is making a difference in our lives and our world. This is our chance to offer some acknowledgement to those who would otherwise be anonymous. I have nominated someone who is working with the Deaf youth with differing abilities for an award. I invite all of you to nominate someone that you know.
The deadline for receipt of online nominations for the Characters Unite Awards is 11:59 p.m. (ET) on March 15, 2013. To complete the nomination form, visit the website (link here): http://www.charactersunite.com . Follow the instructions given on the site.
