Episode 114 – Engaging Charlotte’s Immigrant Communities w/ Federico Rios


This week we sat down with Federico Rios, the City of Charlotte’s first Immigrant and Integration Manager, to learn about his story and the work of the Office of International Relations. This fascinating conversation touches on the incredible impact immigrant populations have on Charlotte, how Charlotteans need to get out of their bubble and ended with an argument about Risk strategy.

We also learned the history of Reggie Hawkins (the father of Charlotte’s Civil Rights Movement), and Supportive Guy teaches us about Charlotte’s Sister Cities.
