The United Workers Movement sponsored a Kids Fun Night on Saturday that was attended by about 400 children, parents and friends. Special guest Attorney Joe Hill, the president of the African American Cultural Preservation Committee and longtime friend to guest workers addressed the group. Junhan Todeno of the Marinas Variety quoted Mr. Hill:
In his remarks, he said the children are the future leaders and it’s important that they know about their rights.

“The children bring a rainbow of colors of people who make up the population in the CNMI,” he said.
Jun Concillado, UWM vice president, served as the master of ceremonies. There were activities, prizes and presentation for the children.

Representatives from the U.S. Census Bureau also attended the gathering to urge the nonresidents to complete census forms. Kathryn Berry and Rebecca Diaz-Cartagena stressed the importance of every person completing the form regardless of nationality or immigration status. The officials told the workers that all information given to the Census Bureau is confidential and the agency is prohibited from sharing it with any government agency or official including immigration and welfare agencies. Census data collection begins April 1, 2010.
