    We would like to invite all STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) professionals located in the Greater Cincinnati area to join our chapter and help us making the 2010 SHPE National Conference the best ever!

    Jorge Seda 

     
     

     

    VP Professional Development & Corporate Affairs 
    Maria Esquibel-King

     

    VP Community Affairs & Student Relations 
    Amaranta Ramirez

    Community : Chamber leads the way for purposeful dialogue: Cincinnati: A City of Immigrants
    Posted by admin on 2010/6/22 7:50:00 (1338 reads)

    CINCINNATI—June 20, 2010—The Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA (HCCUSA) announced to the community the creation of the website:

    www.Cincinnati-CityofImmigrants.com.

    The website offers detailed information about the six major Cincinnati immigrant waves that created the city. It illustrates the contributions of German, Irish, African American, Jewish, Appalachian, and Hispanic immigrants to the local community at different times. The historic content reviewed by Cincinnati historian, Dan Hurley.

    This website is the complement to the publication of the booklet with the same title “ Cincinnati : A City of Immigrants- Struggling Toward Acceptance and Equality.” The booklet and now the website offer the opportunity to open dialogue and attempt to distinguish the myths from the facts about Cincinnati immigrant groups.

    “We developed the website to be accessible to the new ways in which students now learn, said Alfonso Cornejo, president of the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA. “Students and educators have additional history of Cincinnati as it related to its immigrant roots. This website allows us to work with our deployment partners National Underground Freedom Center and Bridges for a Just Community to organize specific programs at the different school districts in a way that is more efficient.”

    The Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA has already distributed 36,000 free copies of the booklet to the community. For free booklets, email office@HispanicChamberCincinnati.com or call HCCUSA at 513-366-2383

    About the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA :

    The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the continued growth and development of the Hispanic/Latino business community in the Tri-State area. The Chamber works closely with profit and nonprofit area businesses as well as the local and state Chambers of Commerce and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. This Chamber is a link and forum within the national network of Hispanics business associations and firms, working to expand business opportunities; to encourage mutually beneficial ties with the public and private sectors; to serve as an active and visible advocate in the Hispanic business arena; and actively promote trade business community and our Latin American counterparts. Since it’s inception, the Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA has reached several local Hispanic businesses.
