The Hazleton Integration Project was included in a book, Undocumented Fears. There is a chapter on page 74- 78 where the role of HIP in the community is noted as "One of the clearest examples of this multicultural approach is HIP's emphasis on the potential of children to overcome social conflict", " Children in contrast will 'engage in activities together, the barriers of unfamiliarity will crumble and friendships will form'". Joe Maddon added " When the kids come [to the community center], the parents will [also] come and hopefully all that superficial nonsense will go away. It starts with the kids."
Dont hesitate to read an incredible book based on Sociology, Political Science, Public Policy and Immigration Studies.
