Welcome to the Pacific Mountain Network Heritage Month Toolkit.
Heritage Months offer an opportunity for public television stations to celebrate the richness and diversity of the communities we serve. The Pacific Mountain Network has gathered information to help participating stations determine how they might highlight diverse cultures through programming, promotion, the selection of "local heroes", and special events for Heritage Months throughout the year.
This Heritage Month Toolkit will offer exceptional opportunities to provide inclusiveness with the public we serve, to enlighten viewers in respect to their fellow citizens' backgrounds and heritage, help generate new revenue, provide awareness within the station, and make local connections throughout your community for many years to come. Stations may wish to "pick and choose", or add to any of the suggestions made.
