ABOUT PROJECT MOSAIC USA:
Project Mosaic USA, Inc. is a new not-for-profit organization (501(c)3) incorporated in New York. It promotes tolerance of those coming from a different background, and challenges prejudice and extremism. Project Mosaic USA aims to foster interfaith and intercultural understanding, multiethnic good citizenship and integration of immigrant communities, and to counter group hatred and radicalization. Project Mosaic USA was set up in memory of New York Firefighter Lieutenant David J. Fontana, one of the 343 firefighters who died on September 11, 2001 while helping to rescue people from the World Trade Towers. The New York-based organization shares aims with Project Mosaic (UK),a London-based nonprofit established in 2008 and that runs three programs: a Young Filmmakers YouTube Film Competition, a Lecture Series and a Global Citizen speaker program.
