A community forum on Immigration Reform sponsored by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center took place on Monday, June 26, 2006 in the Harriet Tubman Theater at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

Immigration and immigration reform has been covered extensively in the news both nationally and locally. It is has arisen as a complex and sometimes divisive issue. Additionally, the race relations studies conducted by National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) and National Underground Railroad Freedom Center have concluded there is an apparent disconnect between the newly arrived immigrants and the overall community.

This community forum was designed to:

• Provide education about Immigration and Immigration reform
• Provide various perspectives to enhance discourse around the issue of immigration and immigration reform
• Engage in an open discussion about immigrants in the U.S. and the Tri-State area.

Panel members included Sister Juana Mendez of Centro de Amistad, Byron McCauley of The Enquirer, Robert "Chip" Harrod of the National Conference for Community and Justice, community advocate Dan Molina, and Immigration Attorney Marilyn Zayas-Davis. The Forum was opened by Dr. Spencer Crew, CEO of the Freedom Center, and moderated by Dr. Cathy McDaniels-Wilson.

Present in the audience we had Michael A. Fox from the Butler County, as well as Gary Hines from the NAACP of West Chester/Hamiliton/Fairfield/Liberty Township.

Many participants were very positive about the forum and expressed a need for more such dialog opportunities. As somebody stated, only through dialog we can learn to understand the other side and work together on a solution to this very complex issue.

What a difference can 200 miles make. The Festival Latino in Columbus, OH was hot and sunny. The Latin Festival in Louisville, KY, was rainy and cold. But the Latin music played by Cincinnati's Tropicoso was hot, and people enjoyed it despite the rain. After all, what are umbrellas for? There was also a very nice Tango demonstration by local dance teachers Andy and Christy.

MidwestLatino was sponsoring the big opening of Latin Nights in Columbus' Coliseum, presented by RitmoProductions.

The Largest Latino After Party Ever following the Columbus Latino Fest, which was was also the Grand Opening of "Sabados Gigantes" or "Giant Saturdays" at the Coliseum Nightclub (6252 Busch Blvd.) was a huge success! The new location is fantastic, in comparison to all the previous ones (like Fabric, Global, Club Seven), absolutely the best! If you didn't make it last night there, don't miss the next Saturday!

We don't know how they do it, but as in previous years, the weather during the Columbus Festival Latino was fantastic! And as usual, the organization was flawless - Ed Myers and his team did a wonderful job! The city government, under leadership of Mayor Mike Coleman, provides a great support for this Festival and for Columbus' Latino community, and it's visible throughout the Festival.
