Chamber leads the way for purposeful dialogue: Cincinnati: A City of Immigrants

Posted by admin on 2010/6/21 23:50:00 (2021 reads)

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

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 or call HCCUSA at 513-366-2383
