The Annie E. Casey Foundation
In August 2002, AECF awarded the Matters of Race series ten outreach grants to MCMOI stations. In partnership with Outreach Extensions, the MCMOI links public television stations to local stakeholders, which serve various constituencies, as a means to strengthen youth and families and build effective communities through the use of media-based resources and strategies.

Stations were invited to conduct an extensive survey that required them to assess their stations' outreach capacities as well as to collaborate with local organizations to identify needs and assets of their local community in relation to diverse immigrant communities.

The Matters of Race outreach campaign has special significance to the AECF sites, in that it provides a vehicle for neighborhood residents to express their viewpoints on race and diversity. With their $10,000 grants, stations documented the responses of ethnically diverse youth and adult residents to a set of questions about race focusing on contemporary experiences, identity, and hopes for the future. These include materials produced for broadcast as interstitials, programs, or segments within public affairs programs.
