"Fostering Global Connectivity","Promoting 'Freedom of Expression' from all walks of life in every corner of the world," "Removing Prejudices," and "Working towards to cultural globalization and global peace."

The Ground of the Light Millennium:

The Light Millennium is an open alternative global multi-media platform and cultural organization for ALL, operating since its inception in 1999.
The organization does not serve to a limited group or community, nor does it require a membership for an annual fee.
LM is an independent entity that does not belong to any religious group or political parties.

It aims to present diverse ideas from all walks of life and from all social and economic levels globally. It is a unique, alternative platform and cultural organization, which encourages intellectual productivity, and strives to present these ideas in order to increase the number of its active participants regularly on its multi-platforms. The ideas presented from a multi-diverse perspective will serve to a wider spectrum, as an example of an ever-increasing participatory approach, in order to reach the aim of “fostering global connectivity” in accordance with the “Mission & Vision” of the organization.

Multi-Platforms & Divisions:

Since its “Introduction” issue (1999) up to date, the Light Millennium has been able to operate, produce, and run all its programs based on 100% volunteer contributions, in terms of production, labor-time, skill, content, reaching-out; and in-collaborations and in-kinds donations for its public programs such as:

* Lightmillennium.Org –in English (22 original issues)-;
* Isikbinyili.Org –in Turkish (19 original issues)-;
* Turkishgreeksynergy.Net – (2 original issues both in Turkish and English)
in English & Turkish- total 43 issues of e-publications;
* Light Millennium TV Programs (produced and presented 65 original programs, and sponsored 11 programs to be shown under the LMTV which are produced by third parties) on Queens Public TV’s 4 channels#34, 35, 56 & 57 since January 2000, and
* Public Programs/Events including the United Nations (organized & presented 55 programs).
For the Mission and Vision of the Organization>
* Recently formed Turkish-Armenian Synergy Initiative with the Civil Society Institute, Yerevan, Armenia.

These are what we have accomplished as a volunteer based and non-funded organization.

The Aims of the $1 Open On-line Membership:

Although, since the beginning (1999), the organization has aimed to e-publish the Light Millennium global platform monthly in English and Turkish and also to be published in 3 to 5 different languages in order to present a diverse cultural background, this has not been possible.

We aim to have 1 million open members & partners in the next 5 years, hoping this will eventually enable us to sustain the organization, make publications in 3 to 5 languages, and move from local public television programs (LMTV on QPTV.Org) to LM-Internet TV, as well as producing international concern documentaries, and launch book printing and magazines based on the Light Millennium’s original content and public programs.

In order to be able to take further steps towards the Light Millennium’s Mission as well as to sustain the organization’s present and future, we have come to a point where we need to involve all potential interested people as open and “Online” members and partners of the organization. For this purpose, we propose an annual contribution of minimum $1 from each open and on-line member, who will be listed on the organization's web site. For international on-line membership, please see the Crescent category in the related page on the NYCharities.Org.

Depending upon the success of the $1 on-line member-partner campaign, the organization aims to realize its predefined and introduced programs, initiatives, and projects, as well as the new emerging and developed ones you would like to realize through a collaboration with the LM.

Accordingly, LM will continue to collaborate or partner with the existing and new educational institutions, NGOs, non-profits, private sector, foundations, individuals, the United Nations, and other global major institutions, who will bring in a completely new perspective to its overall perception as a decisively contributing organization to promoting and presenting “freedom of expression” from all walks of life as well as to “global peace culture.”

By doing so, the organization aspires to become one of the “key” “alternative media and culture” organizations globally.

We will be able to accomplish all of the above and beyond solely with your participation to the organization, forming a globally active/participatory community towards the “global peace culture.”

Thank You,

Disclosure: The Board of Directors of the Light Millennium approved to launch this project at its November 2007 BoD Meeting. The worn-out equipment, necessity to renew the software programs and incompatibility issues led delay in launching this campaign as planned.

About the Logo of the Lightmillennium.Org:

From time to time we face a question in relation to our logo (right), asking if our organization is a “faith-based” one. Once, we were even asked to change our logo in order to obtain financial support; they inquired if the logo refers to “alien abduction.”
Perhaps now is the time to address these questions: The Light Millennium is not a faith-based organization. Rather, it aims to represent all cultural backgrounds on the same platform, on an equal level of importance, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender (even though currently we can operate only in English and Turkish due to limited capacity).

In response to the question in reference to “alien abduction,” LM believes that when all of the nuclear and conventional weapons are completely abolished on the face of Earth, then the entire World and humanity will advance promptly and greatly towards a much more higher level as a whole, which will enable the humanity to make its long-awaited leap to other planets, where potentially “life” could be established through human contact. Our logo simply symbolizes the vision that in the near or far future, the humanity will have a contact with extraterrestrial beings, which will bring in light and will secure peace on the Earth, as well as making human experience and life continue beyond the Earth.
