As part of its Characters Unite month, USA Network executives are planning a gathering in downtown Atlanta focused on combating intolerance, hate and discrimination.

Event spokesman Daniel Hernández Lyon says participants will have opportunities to custom design t-shirts on issues they're passionate about, take photos or video of them and upload them to social media sites.

Lyon says network executives will also be on hand to discuss the Characters Unite initiative, and the campaign will feature on-air programming, digital content and other community events.

The event is scheduled for February 14 at Underground Atlanta on Alabama Street near Peachtree, and will run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
