Mission Statement

A+E Networks, iHeartMedia and United Way have joined forces to launch Shining a Light, a multi-platform initiative designed to promote real progress on race in America, following the Emanuel AME Church tragedy and inspired by the reaction of the family members and Charleston community. The  program is designed to inspire others to go beyond short-lived, symbolic gestures and to explore the uncomfortable truth about the racial inequity and bias in our country and to help individuals and organizations that are working to make progress on issues of race.
