Immigrant Heritage Month: CVIIC Joins Nationwide Celebration

June 2016 is Immigrant Heritage Month!

Throughout the nation, immigrants from all parts of the world, as well as celebrities and community leaders, are standing up to recognize and celebrate their individual and family immigrant heritage. Their individual and collective efforts are also calling attention to the numerous ways in which immigrants have contributed to the greatness of our country.
