Current initiatives

  1. We are working to educate the public on the subject of immigration. Our focus is the young undocumented immigrant who was brought over to the U.S. as a young child, and therefore doesn’t really remember any country other than the U.S.  We recently presented this program at a Cincinnatus meeting and are now in the process of arranging other venues for this program.
  2. Another current initiative has been the study of the inequities in the juvenile justice system. Some progress has been made, but we are waiting for more information as to what still has to be addressed.

Past initiatives 

The Greater Cincinnati Commitment was started by Cincinnatus.  It is a commitment to eliminate discriminatory behaviors, policies and practices from the Cincinnati area. The origin of this is the Birmingham Pledge from Birmingham, Alabama, which began as a result of racial turmoil in that city.
