Through a partnership with The PPL and a grant from the Wesley Mancini Foundation, The LGBT Community Center of Charlotte is providing 20 credentials to The PPL's space for LGBT bloggers who are coming to Charlotte to participate during the Democratic National Convention.
The PPL is more than a centrally located building in Uptown Charlotte that will serve as the hub of activity for 1,000 plus independent voices attending the Democratic National Convention. The PPL is the result of a grassroots effort to organize an energetic workspace, combined with engaging programming, for a diverse, creative community of non-credentialed bloggers, journalists, photographers, artists, and activists who will collectively provide the voice of healthy, respectful political discourse for the Democratic National Convention September 3 through 6.
"We are excited to partner with the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte because we believe in media diversity and part of that means ensuring the LGBT community's voice is present during this historic time," says Desiree Kane, co-founder of The PPL.
You have to complete the application by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, August 26 to apply. Winners will be notified the following week. Click here to get started.
The LGBT Community Center of Charlotte seeks to promote the diversity, visibility and acceptance of the LGBT community through original and collaborative programming and events, and by providing an inclusive, welcoming, and affordable environment for all.
"This partnership is a fantastic opportunity for the LGBT community to have access to incredible media resources during the DNC to increase the visibility and the voice of our community during the DNC," says O'Neale Atkinson, Operations Manager of The LGBT Community Center of Charlotte. "We could not be more pleased to work alongside The PPL on this initiative and believe that this partnership embodies the spirit of the Wesley Mancini Foundation's grant."
The Wesley Mancini Foundation provides funding for projects that foster the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals as full participants in the Charlotte community and/or that work to seek to eliminate censorship and work to promote and support freedom of expression. The founder and president, Wesley Mancini, has been a long-time donor to both the Charlotte arts community and to local, state and national LGBT causes. Mancini established the foundation in 2000 in response to heavy censorship in Charlotte by funding resources, as well as the pervasive attitude among major Charlotte benefactors that gay and lesbian programs were too risky to undertake or underwrite.
