Celebration of Unity
Celebration of Unity 
Each January, the City of Chandler holds a series of events to honor our community's heritage and diversity, along with the spirit, ideals, life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the civil rights movement.

We would like to invite you to become a part of Chandler’s Annual Celebration of Unity events scheduled for the month of January 2016. As a joint collaboration between Chandler Men of Action, East Valley Jewish Community Center, Chandler Center for the Arts, Friends of the Library, Human Relations Commission and the City of Chandler, we are proud to present an extensive variety of community events in which over 10,000 people participate annually.

Events include:


The Creative Expression Competition is open to all students living or attending school in Chandler. Students are encouraged to enter the competition in either of the following categories: Performance, Writing, Visual Art and Video.

Returning and enhanced this year, students will be able to enter their very own stylized video depicting this year’s theme.

Video Category Details:  For those students submitting an entry in the video category you must submit a copy of your video on DVD.  City staff will upload your video to a YouTube Channel.  The top 3-5 entries will then be grouped together in one video on the Community and Neighborhood Resources YouTube Channel for public voting.  

**Please note that all material presented must be deemed appropriate by judges.  All entries that do not meet competition guidelines may be subject to disqualification.

2016 Theme: Peace Through People
