Quote & Essay Contest
The National Campaign to Restore Civil Rights is a progressive, non-partisan campaign connecting people and groups concerned about the rollback of their rights in the federal courts including disability rights, racial justice, womens rights, the rights of workers, immigrants, the aging and others. The Campaign launched, KidsSpeakout, a writing contest for children and teenagers, to get them talking about the value of diversity. The topic is, “Why is diversity important in our public schools?” Submissions for the contest are due by March 30, 2007.
