CLEVELAND - USA Network has launched a Characters Unite national bus tour to help spread the message that everyone, everywhere can help stop hate and all forms of discrimination by saying "I won't stand for…" it anymore.
On Feb. 18, the "I Won't Stand For…" tour will stop at Cleveland's Public Square from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Those who attend the tour can create a free "I won't stand for…" T-shirt, personalizing it by stamping a word to fill in the blank, such as bullying, racism, religious intolerance, sexism, homophobia, ableism and more.
Guests will also be able to film an "I won't stand for…" video to join hundreds of people – including stars of USA's hit shows, athletes and political leaders -- in lending their voices to the Characters Unite movement.
The tour is part of USA Network's Characters Unite Month. Throughout February, the Network shines a spotlight on the importance of promoting greater tolerance, respect and acceptance through extensive on-air programming, digital content and community events across the country.
