Int’l Channel Details ‘We the People’


International Channel Networks detailed plans Tuesday for its upcoming "We
the People" campaign.

The programmer established the We the People program in 2001 to showcase the
successes and contributions of immigrants in America and to explore the
experience of becoming a U.S. citizen.

For 2003, International Channel Networks will introduce a new episode to
expand its In America documentary series, "The Arab American Story."

It will also honor 17 community leaders with "Vision in America Awards,"
which are presented to immigrant American citizens whose inspiring stories and
accomplishments illustrate their dedication to diversity and to their local
ethnic communities.

The campaign will culminate in a series of local events in Dearborn, Mich.;
New York; Fairfax County, Va.; Seattle; San Francisco; and Los Angeles in
September and October.
