The Center for Intercultural Organizing (CIO) is an amazing organization that touches the lives of immigrants and refugees. The close-knit intercultural relationships created and fostered through this organization by bringing together so many different cultures (many with long-time historical conflicts) are creating long-term change locally and state-wide; creating a positive ripple effect for American born residents, and maybe even worldwide. According to the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, every dollar invested in CIO's advocacy, organizing and civic engagement garnered $150 in benefits for their communities.
