National Urban League 'Everybody Wins'
HollandWestProductions collaborated with TV One to direct a PSA for the National Urban League. The National Urban League (NUL), is a nonpartisan civil rights organization based in New York City that advocates on behalf of African Americans and against racial discrimination in the United States. The National Urban League PSA is to promote Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in schools.
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) exist to ensure that all children have access to a high quality education. Equitable implementation of CCSS is pivotal to ensuring that all students- regardless of where they live- graduate high school with the skills they need to be ready to succeed in today and tomorrow’s modern economy.
Our team designed a public service announcement that that imagines children at a track meet starting at the same starting point at, each having a fair chance to win the race. This visualization of the equal implementation of CCSS features Marc Morial, President & CEO, National Urban League. #PurOurChildren1st
The commercial has aired nationally on TV One and on the National Urban League’s Youtube with over 2,000 views. Currently, 42 states, the District of Columbia, four territories and the Department of Defense Education Activity have adopted the Common Core State Standards.
