At the start of 2015, John Cranley, the Mayor of Cincinnati, made public his commitment to make Cincinnati the most immigrant friendly city in the United States. He assembled a taskforce that wrote a plan to make Cincinnati more welcoming for all. A community ID was chosen as a priority initiative. The ID is set to be distributed in the first quarter of 2016. Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio (CCSWOH), and in particular, Ms. Alisa Berry, Chief Operating Officer, have been instrumental in making this goal a reality.
