CMC is blessed with volunteers who are active across the community, and we love it when they find ways to spread the word about our mission! Thanks to Rich Patterson for his article in the October 18 issue of the Cedar Rapids Gazette for highlighting CMC’s work to help new immigrants adjust to life in the U.S. by offering English as a Second Language instruction.
As Rich describes, immigration isn’t a new trend in the U.S.; it’s a part of each one of our family histories. The Corridor is blessed with several ethnic museums that preserve this heritage of immigration and remind us of our past, thereby encouraging acceptance of the individuals who are working hard to establish a new pattern for their own families after recently immigrating to the U.S.
