Weary of He Who Must Not Be Named? In desperate, soul-starved need of proof that his hate-filled America is not, in fact, all we are as a country? Here's the Ad Council's LoveHasNoLabels diversity-themed PSA, featuring real people and stories, which just won this year's Creative Arts Emmy for Best Commercial. Produced with non-profit partners that include the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League, the campaign's goal is to “challenge us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it," via the tags Love Has No ///Age/Disability. A tale of love, hope, joy, connection, it reminds us in these bleak and bitter times of our common humanity. Hold fast to it, and we'll make it.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
