USA Network Launches College Tour Bus at UVA

Posted: Updated:

The USA Network launched a nationwide college bus tour at the University of Virginia Tuesday to combat hate and discrimination.

Students joined the Characters Unite movement by taking photos on the bus to declare an issue they won't stand for. They also got to create personalized T-shirts by stamping on an injustice they won't tolerate such as hate, prejudice, and racism.

“It's just reassuring to let people have the opportunity to voice their opinion and not hide it and if everyone comes together, it's just a movement that I think is very important in today's society,” said tour producer Gina Stefani.

The network’s Characters Unite month focuses on promoting greater tolerance and acceptance.

UVA is one of seven stops across the country.
