Giving a shout-out to today’s fight for civil rights

LatinaLista — Are people’s civil rights being violated today?
' border=
It’s a question that crops up with every protest march, discrimination (pay, gender, ethnicity) lawsuit and public rally. Some feel that at the height of the civil rights movement, the fight of the 1960s, never really got resolved. Others think that today we have a new set of civil rights that need to be protected.
A new video contest by The National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights wants to explore the question of what the next generation is doing to protect civil rights. The Civil Rights 2.0 Video Contest is open to students between the ages of 16-25.
All that’s required is to upload a 2-minute video to YouTube, tag it “civilrights2.0,” fill out the registration form and make sure all of this is done before July 31, 2008.
This wouldn’t be a contest without prizes — the Grand Prize is a trip to New York City and three runners-up will each receive a new video camera.
The fight for civil rights is such an important component of our nation’s democracy that a contest that celebrates it deserves a big shout-out!
