Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC) is hosting community events throughout the month of March to celebrate Human Relations Month. This year’s theme is “Connecting Cultures and Communities.” All events will be free and open to the public.
The kick off event will take place on March 5 from 11-1 pm at City Hall in room 115. The “Cultural Tasting” will provide an opportunity for guests to engage with different cultural organizations. CHRC will provide booths for participating organizations. Attendees will experience the wealth of ethnic diversity within our city and sample authentic foods.
The second event will be held on March 13 from 6-8 pm at the Beans and Grapes Coffee House on 6200 Montgomery Rd. CHRC has partnered with Housing Opportunities Made Equal to host a collaborative vent entitled “My Neighbor is Different......What Happens Next?” Teens and adults are invited to an exchange about the struggles and successes in engaging all members of the community — races, religions, ages, abilities, socio-economic levels, housing situations, marital statuses. Reservations are appreciated and can be made by email at myra(dot)calder(at)homecincy(dot)org or by phone at 513-721-4663, ext. 2623.
The last event is dedicated to youth, ages 12-19, and will be held on March 21 from 6-8 pm at City Hall in the Council Chambers. “Night-at-the-Mic” is a public forum that will give youth the opportunity to express their concerns and brainstorm solutions to local elected officials and influential community leaders. All youth will be signed up on arrival and one at a time take the podium to talk about issues they feel are relevant in their community.
