Over Presidents' Weekend, children from Lauderhill, Coral Springs and North Lauderdale met in Palm Beach County to participate in the Unitown 2006 program. Arrange by the National Conference for Community Justice (NCCJ), and sponsored by the cities, the event was to introduce kids from different backgrounds so they may learn from each other.
The motto of the program is "Prejudice is a Disease, Don't Make Me Sick." After an intense weekend of activities, the participates learn that being different from each other is not something to be ridiculed by. That we all are one people, and these differences need to be understood, and not to used to judge others. Many lasting relationships have been developed from this experience.
