Join "BRIDGES for a Just Community" for a forum on immigration designed to discuss issues related to immigration and immigration reform in America.

The forum will be held in the Harriet Tubman Theater at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and will give the attendees an opportunity to learn more about the complex nature of immigration in the Cincinnati region and around the country.  The forum will represent a range of voices in the immigration debate including perspectives from faith, law enforcement, and labor communities throughout the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas.

The forum is being held as part of Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month is a celebration of the U. S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 thru October 15.
Ohio Latino Fest will kick off the month at Nautica Pavilion on Saturday, October 2, 2010 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Latino community is comprised of many nationalities and cultural groups. Northern Ohio is home to more than 65% of the Latino community in the state of Ohio, and Cuyahoga County enjoys one of the largest Latino communities in the state. Cleveland and the surrounding areas have one of the largest Puerto Rican populations, and Painesville is one of the fastest growing Mexican communities in Ohio. While Ohio’s population grew at a rate of just under 5%, the Hispanic population in Ohio grew at a 55% rate, and continues to grow. The Latino community is the largest ethnic group in the United States, and is one of the most sought after buying groups in America.

Ohio Latino Fest will honor our local Latinos and their cultural diversity including music, food, art and dance that reflect their heritage.
Come celebrate with others from the community!!

In September 1968, Congress authorized President Lyndon B. Johnson to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week. The observance was expanded in 1988 to a month-long celebration (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15).

America celebrates the culture and traditions of U.S. residents who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Sept. 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.
