Jacksonville, NC’s Once City, Our City, My City campaign won second place in the 50,001 – 200,000 category of the City Cultural Diversity Awards.
One City, Our City, My City is a year long campaign to promote respect, caring and collaboration between all citizens for a better Jacksonville. It is envisioned that Jacksonville is a unified and Caring Community. The campaign is about getting to know those living nearby, learning about different people and cultures and races. It’s about focusing on the similarities between each other instead of their differences. The idea for the campaign comes after a year of Jacksonville, NC Mayor Sammy Phillips meeting with members of the City’s faith community where the need for tolerance, understanding and civility was discussed.
