The 2008 NSHMBA (National Society of Hispanic MBAs) National Conference, that took place in Atlanta, Oct. 9-11, was a huge success! There were over 8,500 participants!

Now celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the Walk for a Just Community is an inspiring event promoting inclusion, equity, and justice for all! Last year alone the event involved over 2,000 people and raised almost $200,000! The Walk is the preeminent event of its kind in this region for promoting the value of diversity and necessity of an inclusive community, and the proceeds benefit the critical programs of both BRIDGES for a Just Community and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

This year the event started at 10:00 on October 18th, 2008 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and ended there after a route that took walkers through both Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The route was 3.1 miles (5K) long to make it more accessible for those with special needs, families, and senior citizens! Additionally, there was the opportunity to participate in the Annual Freedom Run, which is a registered 5K, with a $25.00 entrance fee. After the Walk and Run, there was entertainment from local dance troupes, choirs, and other artists. This celebration is truly a display of the rich ethnic and cultural compilation of our region.

This year, BRIDGES invited Latinos to walk as ONE community FOR a just community on 10/18. Maria Molina, who is on the Board of Bridges, was inviting all Latinos to consider joining the team as a sign of LATINO UNITY. Many did, and below is are pictures from this event:

October 13, 2008 - The Alliance for Immigrant Women will launch a culturally relevant, multi-media Spanish language public awareness campaign at the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati, 898 Walnut Street on October 14 at 1:30 pm. This far reaching campaign, funded by Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, and U.S. Department of Justice, will raise awareness about rights and services available to documented and undocumented victims of domestic violence in Hamilton, Clermont, and Butler counties. Violence diminishes the quality of life for everyone. The danger to limited English proficiency Hispanic domestic violence victims in Greater Cincinnati is exacerbated exponentially by fear of law enforcement, fear of utilizing existing resources, misinformation, and myriad barriers. All victims of domestic violence, regardless of their immigration status, must understand their rights and have access to safety, support and freedom from further injury and abuse.
