The chart to the right links to a brief slide presentation illustrating the true diversity of the US Population.
The idea of the chart is to show there is no real majority population in the US. Each slice illustrates the relative size of ethnic groups who migrated to and within the US by choice or force. We are a nation built on stories of migrations. The creativity brought to life inside each story is a rich, often untapped, resource of ideas, invention, and innovation.
Funding creativity found in local communities promises to be an avenue to sustainable expansion of wealth.
" we will foster diverse creative and imaginative economies.. ....vibrant places... ...that allow our businesses and workers the best opportunities to innovate and succeed..." President Barack Obama, Conference of Mayors, February 2009
