on the Web in August 1999, accomplished

Light Millennium is built on the first
article of the United States Bill of Rights:
Freedom of Speech in conjunction with
the Universal Human Rights, Article #19
on Freedom of Expression.
It invites citizens of the world to submit
in an appropriate artistic medium ideas
and experiences that will help foster
better understanding and connections between
people of different cultures and beliefs.
LM has been publishing and present diversity
of ideas without censorship writings,
images and music that promote the well-being
of the world and its inhabitants since
Light Millennium was introduced on the
web in August 1999 as a global platform
inviting individuals to represent themselves
and their communities. In January 2000,
LM brought in multi-volunteer participation,
and was formally incorporated on July
17, 2001. Individuals or organizations
that share the same objectives as LM are
encouraged to participate in our platform
as writers, researchers, editors, activity
organizers, and fundraisers. Contributors
range from 7 to 90 years old, come from
all over the world and from various disciplines.
In its 6th Anniversary, LM has upheld
the philosophy that all ideas can stand
side by side as long as we respect and
have a tolerance for each other, for other
ideas, cultures, and religions.
LM is a Charitable & Public Benefit
organization and has relied on 100% volunteer
work and in-kind sponsorships gathered
for public events. Up to date, LM has
been formed and developed with the voluntary
efforts of its founder and supporters,
supplemented (to date) by four fundraising
The organization has e-published 18 issues
of Light Millennium in English, 11 issues
of ISIK BINYILI in Turkish, 2 issues of
Turkish-Greek Synergy in English and Turkish
(a total of 30 original e-publications),
and since 2000, has organized numerous
events including panels, conferences,
lectues, special screenings, literary
readings, poetry events, story nights,
campaigns (for Fügen Gülertekin
& Tsunami/Sri Lanka). The Light Millennium
TV series since January 2000 (for LMTV
broadcasts monthly independent programs
on arts, culture, "freedom of expression,"
peace and global issues at Queens Public
The Light Millennium Web site has been
visited in over 105 countries since April
14, 2005. As an open global alternative
platform, the Light Millennium has been
formed by over 650 volunteer content contributors
since January 2000. The Light Millennium
also has become associated with
the Department of Public Information of
the United Nations effective as

"What is especially interesting is
that she (Light Millennium) publishes
articles by people with great experience
and provocative points of view,"
Kinzer said to Queens Chronicle newspaper
(March 25, 2004). "Many private Web
sites and blogs are filled with one person's
ramblings. Light Millennium is the opposite
of that. It's an increasingly sophisticated
online magazine that provides insights
that people won't find in many other places."
The Internet is one of the main platforms
for creating global connections. LM started
with a core audience of Turks and Turkish-Americans
and provided a link to a global community
of thinkers interested in peace, humanitarian
issues, dialogue and international cooperation.
In recent editions the audience has broadened
and contributions are now received from
all over the world.
Historically, Turkey has been a bridge
between Europe and Asia; between Islam
and Christianity; between Democracy and
Religion. Bringing those old Turkish traditions
to the Internet, LM has the potential
to be a bridge for humanity, spreading
the message of peace and tolerance to
all cultures and all countries.
