Rap Against Violence II: Develop Not Destroy
Multicultural Public Relations - Cable System 3

Bright House Networks, Central Florida - Maitland, FL
Rap Against Violence II: Develop Not Destroy To help stop Florida’s gun violence and redirect the energy of the popular hip hop and rap music genres that tend to glorify handguns, State Attorney Norman Wolfinger created the “Rap Against Violence II” contest.  Wolfinger brought together Bright House Networks and local rap and hip-hop FM station 102 JAMZ to form a partnership with the State Attorney’s Office that would help “Rap Against Violence” reach the widest possible audience—with a special emphasis on young people. Florida Governor Charlie Crist presented Bright House Networks and 102 JAMZ with a “Governor’s Special Recognition Award”.  Plans call for Rap Against Violence to become an annual competition that can be replicated in other cities and states.

Discovery Communications - Silver Spring, MD
Thought LeadersIn late 2006, Discovery Networks U.S. Hispanic Group embarked on a very special primary research project to help it connect and understand key issues facing Hispanics today including employment, immigration, education, discrimination and media role models. It partnered with Roper/GfK Public Affairs, a leading research company, and spoke with leaders across the country about their views, ideas and concerns within and around Latinos.  Discovery then used extensive press outreach to ensure its message and findings were communicated to the larger community, including affiliates and ad sales decision makers.
