Coalition for Immigrant Dignity

COALITION FOR IMMIGRANT DIGNITY

COALITION FOR IMMIGRANT DIGNITY FORMS, ISSUES RESPONSE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACTION ON IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT


Yesterday afternoon, President  Trump announced two executive actions regarding immigration, including construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and several aggressive strategies to enforce our nation’s outmoded immigration laws. The orders are unworkable, irrational, and wrong.

These policies have one basic goal – fostering divisions harmful divisions among cities, among co-workers, among parishioners and neighbors. But the people of Greater Cincinnati will not be divided. Here in this town President Trump’s efforts will fail.

In our beloved community we remain devoted to unity – committed to basic human decency for all.

To celebrate this unity we have formed the Coalition for Immigrant Dignity, an alliance of labor, civil rights, faith, and charitable groups. Coalition members are employers and employees. We are clergy and parishioners, clients and social workers, students and teachers, vendors and clients, patients and care givers, parents and children, sons and daughters.

We are first generation, we are 12th generation, we are new arrivals – refugees, visa holders, and others patiently waiting for an opportunity to enter on the pathway to citizenship. We are citizens and immigrants together. We believe in one another.

30 years have now gone by since Washington D.C. leaders came together to craft comprehensive updates to the nation’s immigration laws. A generation’s worth of D.C. leaders have failed to deliver needed changes. With these executive orders, the nation’s collective failure is now occupying center stage.

All who oppose these orders are encouraged to join our local Coalition for Immigrant Dignity.

Our coalition brings thousands of men and women together, makes them members one of another. We will share with one another common tools for common goals.  We will educate, advocate and organize to oppose unjust deportations, defend the DACA program, and prevent harassment and bullying in all forms.  Our goals are goals for all America – and our enemies are the enemies of all progress. The two cannot be separated.

Join us at our next meeting.  For more information email info@cworkers.org or 513-621-5991

 

移民尊严联

移民尊严联盟已经组建,并且对特朗普总统在移民问题上的行动做出了反应


昨天下午,特朗普总统发布了对移民方面的两个行政行动包括在美墨边境上修建一堵墙和一些激进的、为了加强我国过时的移民法律的策略 然而这些命令是不可行的,不合理的,并且是错误的

这些政策有一个基本目的 – 在城市之间,同事之间,教区居民和邻居之间造成危害性极大的分裂 但大辛辛那提的人民并不会因此而分裂。 这个城市,特朗普总统的努力将会失败

在我们所爱的社区,我们仍然致力于团结 – 为所有人致力于基本美德的建设

为了庆祝这个团结,我们成立了移民尊严联盟,一个代表了工人,民权,信仰和慈善机构的联盟 联盟成员包括雇主和雇员 是牧师和教区居民,客户和社会工作者,学生和教师,供应商和客户,患者和护理人员,父母和孩子,儿子和女儿

们是第一代,我们也是第十二代,同时,们也是刚到来的难民,签证持有人,和其他耐心等待着机会去获得公民权的人 们同是公民和移民 并且们相互信任彼此

自从华盛顿特区的领导人齐聚一堂,对全国移民法进行全面更新之来,已经过去了三十 一代首都特领导者的努力未能传达必要的改变 随着这些行政命令,国家的集体失败现在正在占据着舞台的中心

我们鼓励所有反对这些命令的人加入我们当地的移民尊严联盟

们的联盟将成千上万的男和女团结在一起,使他们一个接一个的成为我们的成员 们将分享对同一目标的共同资源 们将教育,倡导和组织反对不公正的驱逐出境,维护DACA计划,并且防止各种形式的骚扰和欺凌 们的目标即是全美国的目标 – 们的敌人即是所有阻碍进步的敌人两者不能分开。

在我们下次集会的时候加入我们!想了解更多的信息,请电邮 info@cworkers.org 或致电 513-621-5991

New Chairman’s Welcome

Greater Cincinnati Chinese Chamber of Commerce (G4C) Chairman’s Welcome

Dear G4C members,

I am honored to serve as your Chairman during this 2016-17 year. I want to thank our immediate past Chair Michael Kou, of Growth by Export, for his dedication and service to the G4C. Under his leadership, this Chamber experienced a tremendous transformation. I look forward to continuing his hard work and I am committed to doing my best in executing the responsibilities charged to me. Michael will remain with the Board as Chair Emeritus and will continue to serve as our trusted advisor. Also I want to thank Catalin Macarie (UC), Kevin Kahn (K2 Industrial Controls International), and Louisa Luk (Green Energy Enterprises) for their hard work as part of the outgoing 2015-16 executive team.

We now begin the year of the Monkey and prepare to welcome the Rooster. This is a transitional year for G4C and we are under new management. Tessa Xuan, Executive Director, is hard at-work building organizational processes and volunteer capacity to ensure our viability and sustainability. We are lucky to have her and she needs all of our support. My goal this year is to assist her the best I can to stabilize and grow this Chamber, to build a succession plan for our volunteer leadership ranks, and to promote awareness and engagement among G4C members and the region at-large. I am fortunate to have a strong Executive Committee to help with the heavy lifting and to help accomplish this. A special thanks to:

  • John Guo from 5/3 Bank (1st Vice Chair of Membership)
  • Franklin Lim from Kroger (2nd Vice Chair of Programs)
  • Hui-Pin Sepulveda from Deloitte Tax (Treasurer)
  • Rhonda Schechter from Frost Brown Todd (Secretary)

In China, there is a saying: 德本財末 – virtue first, wealth follows. This Chamber was founded as a group of Chinese restaurateurs who thought to help themselves by helping each other. Over the years, many others have come and gone and made this Chamber what it is today. As we struggle to define the Chamber’s identity, associated of Chinese? Of Asians? Or of Americans who are doing business in China? We come to realize such an inquiry begs the fundamental question of why we are coming together. We are not here to benefit one person, one race, one culture, or one country in particular. On the contrary, we are associated together because we are all vested in our connection with the richness of Chinese culture, as well as our mutual interests in our professional endeavors. We are associated because we believe in the timeless Chinese virtues pertinent to the changes around us; we believe the sizable impact China will have on our common future. And most importantly, we are associated together because we want to make the Greater Cincinnati region more diverse and prosperous than we found it.

So we come together as a “Chinese Chamber” charged with the task of taking care of one another in these trying times. In light of the recent racial tensions, global terror, and growing distance between all of us, I stand with my fellow board members committed to deliver to you, our members, a Chamber of Commerce worthy of its name and tradition.

Yours truly,

Jin Kong, Esq.

Board Chairman 2016-17
