MOSCOW, RUSSIA — The Center for Interethnic Cooperation is a non-profit based in Moscow specializing in protecting minority rights and combating racism and discrimination. The project's purpose is to strengthen the Center's presence on the Internet and to enable the Center to use its website, social network pages, and blogging platforms in a targeted and effective manner to combat racism and discrimination. The project would train groups of primarily young Internet users in three Russian cities â Yaroslavl, Ekaterinburg, and Pyatigorsk â in the skills of blogging and creating an effective Internet campaign. Foundation dollars would be spent on salaries, honoraria for writers, and travel expenses.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Center for the Interethnic Cooperation $50,000 between 2010 and 2013.
