Interethnic Coalition: Harmony Through Music
The Georgia Interethnic Coalition (GIC) sponsored its 2nd annual community event on Sunday, November 16. The family event offered an enriching cultural experience through the music of the Harmony International Youth Chorus. Over 200 people of all ages and communities enjoyed the midday event.
"We couldn't think of a more appropriate program to bring Atlanta's ethnic communities together since the future lies within the understanding and tolerance of our children," said Toby Sidman, GIC Steering Committee Member. Participants enjoyed an interactive concert performance with songs in many different languages.
Co-sponsors of the community event included the Indian American Cultural Association (IACA), Indian Professionals Network (IPN), 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition, Atlanta Tribune, American Jewish Committee, Asian-American Coalition, Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Korean Association of Greater Atlanta, Latin American Association, Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, National Association of Chinese Americans, National Federation of Indian-American Associations, Southern Regional Council, and the Vietnamese Professionals Society.
Members of the Georgia Interethnic Coalition have come together to strengthen relationships and to foster cooperation and understanding among their communities. The GIC's goals are to educate one another about our diverse cultures, to advocate on public policy issues of common concern to our communities, and to provide social opportunities to build strong relationships and trust.
