Our friend Hasmik is planning a research trip to Mexico as part of her PhD program:

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a PhD Student, trying to invest my skills, knowledge and experience into raising awareness in public about domestic violence, abuse and poverty, training para-professionals outside of America, to work with victimized populations, handling crisis intervention. I am doing research on Cross-Cultural Counseling and training in Crisis Intervention. For now, this research is including a possible publication and several presentations at Professional Counseling Conferences starting in Fall.

My trip to Mexico is the field research portion of my study. I will be studying domestic violence, abuse and poverty stricken mental health needs in the context of Mexican Culture. The second portion consists of about 40 hour intensive training program of Back2Back ministry's staff in Monterrey in crisis intervention, handling trauma and mental health, as well as abuse related specific emotional/mental needs. 

The staff is eager to start the training ASAP with specific needs that they face on daily basis. I have very limited time to raise sufficient funds to make the trip.

Not only this project will help the very compassionate people in Monterrey who have dedicated their lives to helping the population in that country, but will also contribute to the field of Mental Health in understanding how to interpret the Western concept of counseling into cultures where mental health has a strong, negative stigma attached to it and very little, if any, practical application that benefits the under-privileged people. 

As a volunteer, there is no financial compensation involved, either for travel and living expenses, nor for the time at the mission facility. And of course there cannot be, due to the fact that my student visa does not permit me to be gainfully employed.

The organization is called Back2Back Ministries, they have been doing an incredible work in Monterrey and Cancun, in addition to Africa. I chose them among many organizations, because the establisher of this amazing work is a very humble person and does not want any advertisement behind his name. Here is their website: The tax ID number is 31-1468516.

Our good friend Marty is offering his home for a private salsa party /Fundraiser on the 5th of February, Saturday, from 9 PM to 1 AM, and DJ Tony Pabon has volunteered his services as DJ that night.

Furthermore, one anonymous (by choice) individual has committed to match up to the first $500 of donations received prior to or at the party event. Let's make sure that cap is met and exceeded!

It will be a great party and we need you there

If any member of the Salsa community in Cincinnati would like to join, please email me and I'll get you the directions. 

And if you cannot come, we still accept donations for Hasmik - you can donate at any of our events @ Mad Frog on Mondays, or @ Bartini's on Wednesdays.

The Cincinnati Chapter of SHPE has been created in May 2010, and officially approved the the SHPE National Board on June 13, 2010.

This is a very exciting year for us, as Cincinnati will be hosting from Oct. 27-31, 2010, the 2010 SHPE National Conference. Bringing the Conference to Cincinnati couldn't happen without all the hard work of SHPE Ohio Southwest chapter located in Dayton, OH.

But by having the conference here, it was also a great opportunity to expand SHPE in Ohio and establish a new chapter here.

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!

The Current Board:

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

Last Day to Mail Back 2010 Census Forms

Residents Urged to Act Today or Risk Visit from Census Workers in May

Today marks the last day for residents across America to mail back their 2010 Census questionnaires. Households that return their forms after April 16 will likely be visited by census workers when they begin May 1 going door to door to collect census responses.

Residents are encouraged to mail back their 2010 Census forms today. Those who wait to mail back their forms should expect to be visited by census workers, who will visit homes in person to ensure an accurate count of every person living in the United States. Census takers, who are members of the community in which they are working, will visit a household up to six times, each time leaving a door hanger featuring a phone number. Residents can call the number on the hanger to schedule a visit and be counted.

“Now's the time to clear off your kitchen table and stick that form in the mail,” U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Groves said. “Residents who fail to mail back their forms today should be prepared to get a knock on their doors in May and July.”

About 72 percent of Ohio households have mailed back their census forms. In 2000, the mail participation rate was 77 percent.

To make sure residents are counted, use these last minute outreach suggestions to increase participation rates:

  • Post copies of the questionnaire at areas of high traffic so that residents have a chance to view it and understand that the questions are not intrusive.
  • Send out a news release today with information about how residents can submit their 2010 Census over the phone (see below).
  • Submit an editorial on the importance of the census to your community and highlight a major project that was funded by census-based federal dollars.
  • Address residents on air or over the radio to stress the importance of filling out the form and the telephone number.
  • Call your local school district to ask teachers to ask their students: “Have you been counted?” Children have historically be undercounted because they spend time at multiple locations during the week.
  • Ask local non profits or faith-based organizations to support the 2010 Census and let them know how their community is responding to the form. Check your participation rate here:

Puerto Rican-born citizens living in the United States will now have to request a new copy of their birth certificates.

The country's Gov. Luis Fortuño signed a law making all old birth certificates processed prior to December 2009 not valid in any federal agency.

A transition period will be in effect until July 1. The new law is an effort to reduce all fraud cases reported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the past year.

According to the governmental agency, a Puerto Rican birth certificate runs for about $5,000 to $10,000 in the black market.

Puerto Ricans born in the island receive an American Social Security number and are eligible for a United States passport from birth.      

In order to obtain an Ohio Driver License or Identification Card, applicants using a Puerto Rico birth certificate will need to provide additional documents to prove their identify.

A list of acceptable primary and secondary documents can be found at:
