New Faces in the Community: The Refugee Experience in Northern KY/Cincinnati

Institution

Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

Two thousand, nine hundred seventy eight immigrants migrated to the core based statistical area of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky in 2009. This number is relatively low compared to many of the other areas of the country. However, because these populations are not as prevalent in the region, much of the public is ignorant to the diversity that exists in the area through these immigrants. In many cases throughout history, this same ignorance fuelled injustice, discrimination and prejudice. This study was designed to promote greater refugee inclusion into society specifically in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas.
