GIC Focuses on Georgia’s Diverse Ethnic Groups

July 2003
GIC Focuses on Georgia’s Diverse Ethnic Groups

The Georgia Interethnic Coalition (GIC) announces the second in a series of "Focus on Communities" programs to introduce Georgia's diverse ethnic groups to each other. Co-sponsored with the American Jewish Committee, this month's series is "Focus on the Jewish Community" of Atlanta on June 17th from 6 PM to 9 PM at The Selig Center, 1140 Spring Street. Admission to the event is $12.00 per person.

The GIC represents the diverse ethnic communities whose members have come together to strengthen relationships and foster cooperation and understanding. Its goals are to educate one another about our diverse communities, advocate on policy issues of concern in our communities, and to provide social opportunities for building strong relationships and trust. The coalition features a different community at each dinner throughout the year. In April 2003, the Indian community was explored. Each event is co-sponsored with the GIC and coordinated by the group that the coalition will be learning about. The Indian Professionals Network (IPN) planned the April event with over a hundred people in attendance.

Exciting events are scheduled for this fall. The September program will be an advocacy workshop. A pre-Thanksgiving family event will feature Harmony International Children's Choir in November. For additional information and to reserve your seat, please call 404-233-5501 or e-mail your reservation to atlanta@ajc.org. Reservations are required for entry to this event.
