Immigrant History Month

Proclamation

WHEREAS, generations of immigrants from every corner of the globe have built our country's economy and created the unique character of our nation; and
WHEREAS,

immigrants continue to innovate grow businesses, strengthen our economy, and create American jobs in southern Indiana; and

WHEREAS, immigrants have provided the United States with unique social and cultural influence, fundamentally enriching the extraordinary character of our music; and
WHEREAS,

immigrants have been tireless leaders not only in securing their own rights and access to equal opportunity, but have also campaigned to create a fairer and more just society for all Americans; and

WHEREAS,

despite these countless contributions, the role of immigrants in building and enriching our nation has frequently been overlooked and undervalued throughout our history and continues to the present day.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, John Hamilton, Mayor of Bloomington, Indiana do hereby proclaim June 2016

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have here
unto set my hand and caused to be affixed the
