Community : Hispanic leaders call for reform on immigration within 100 days
Posted by admin on 2007/1/9 10:52:20 (1636 reads)

 

By Alexander Bolton

National Hispanic leaders are pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to make immigration reform a top priority within the first 100 days of the new Congress, citing the large numbers of Hispanics who turned out to vote for Democrats in November.

Several of the largest Hispanic advocacy groups in the country, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project and the Hispanic Federation, plan to stage a massive grassroots campaign to pressure House lawmakers to move quickly on immigration. They will team with America Votes, one of the nation’s largest liberal voter-mobilization groups, to push reform.

“As you prepare to lead the 110th Congress of the United States of America, we urge you to make immigration reform one of your top priorities during the first 100 days of the new Congress,” the president of LULAC, Rosa Rosales, and the president of the Hispanic Federation, Lillian Rodriguez-Lopez, wrote in a letter delivered to Pelosi and Reid over the weekend.

LULAC describes itself as the country’s largest and oldest Hispanic civil rights organization. The Hispanic Federation is a coalition of about 100 local groups, most based in the New York area.

Business : “Flavors of Diversity” - A Workshop to sample the Latino Cultures (Thu. Jan. 18th)
Posted by admin on 2007/1/7 15:20:00 (2097 reads)

 

 January is Supplier Diversity Celebration Month at Cincinnati Public Schools and Pamela Mullins, manager of Supplier Diversity at Cincinnati Public Schools, invites everyone to “Flavors of Diversity” - a festive and unique workshop to take place on Thu. Jan. 18th from 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM, to experience the diversity of Latino cultures.

“This workshop has been created to enable a very different way of focusing on common ground.  Foods and flags will have visual connections to the teachings to help better facilitate the conversation,” Mullins said. “Hispanics and African-Americans are the two largest minority groups in Greater Cincinnati that we are currently serving through our program. Workshop participants will experience the diversity of 10 Spanish-speaking countries and sample the taste of traditional flavors of Latin American food prepared by local chef talent Liliana Gebran-Tramontin, from Venezuela (of Lebanese descent). Alma Bartos, director of the Cincinnati Spanish Academy, has taken their ‘Playgroup’ concept and created this special diversity workshop for CPS’ Supplier Diversity.”

The Cincinnati Spanish Academy offers people and businesses the opportunity to learn the Spanish language and be exposed to Hispanic culture. Their presentations are customized to meet client’s interests and are delivered at businesses, homes or other settings.

Community : Cincinnati: The Freedom Project
Posted by admin on 2007/1/5 12:30:00 (1850 reads)

Resized Image Resized Image

There is a lot of talk about bringing people together in Cincinnati. The fact is -- we need it. Too many people in our community live and socialize with people that look just like them and rarely with people of a different race. Do you want to be a part of changing this? As young professionals, we can help bring people together, starting with ourselves.

Give Back Cincinnati and FreedomYP (the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center’s young professionals group), are teaming up to provide you with an opportunity to be a part of something new – and something very special. It’s called the Freedom Project, and it will provide you with a unique opportunity to actively volunteer in our community while building relationships with people of diverse backgrounds. The kickoff will take place on Wed. January 10, 6PM - 8 PM at McFadden.

For more info, please visit FreedomYP website (click here)
