CENTER FOR INTERCULTURAL ORGANIZING
October 7, 2013

I witnessed the development of the Center for Intercultural Organizing from seed to the thriving organization it is today. I myself am an immigrant and the challenges facing this population are close to my heart. The sense of loneliness, isolation and discouragement are real. There are very few venues for the immigrant and refugee to deal with the confusion and anxiety created by the clash with a foreign culture. CIO offers a space where multilingual and multicultural people are learning and engaging in their communal challenges. CIO believes that the people most affected by an issue should be the individuals and communities leading and advocating for solutions.
CIO is the catalyst of changes for these individuals from helplessness and confusion to integration and leadership in the struggle for social economic justice.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

CIO has discovered a unique mode of multicultural integration that could be useful for so many other organizations. I think these knowledge needs to be harnessed in a method that can be made available for others.
