National Immigrant Integration Conference 2012 in Baltimore, MD - Sep 22-25, 2012
The National Immigrant Integration Conference 2012 (NIIC 2012) is the largest national conference to bring together immigrant integration leaders and advocates from across the country. NIIC 2012 is designed to take the public dialogue on immigration beyond the border enforcement headlines and dive deep into the effort to diversify the American Dream by ensuring that immigrants have the opportunity to become integral members of the U.S. communities they call home.
We invite you to join us! This year's conference will be held at the Baltimore Hilton in Baltimore, Maryland from September 22-25, 2012.
NIIC 2012 will put politics and controversy aside to focus on strengthening the systems and tools that allow immigrants who are already in the country to function and participate fully in their societies and communities, and to build healthy and valued lives for themselves and their families.
The conference brings together a broad cross-section of professionals whose day-to-day work can inform this conversation, including experts on immigration and refugee policies, service providers, academics, government officials and advocates. Finding solutions that empower immigrants to build stronger, healthier communities is the path to a fully functioning society. We achieve this by ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to fully participate in the civic activities that define our country, including education and the political process, and by ensuring that everyone has access to health care, religious institutions and commercial resources such as banking.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Alejandro Mayorkas, Dr. Manuel Pastor of the University of Southern California, Dr. Westy Egmont of Boston College and Dr. Karthick Ramakrishnan of the University of California, Riverside will all be featured at the conference.
The National Immigrant Integration Conference is the signature event of the National Partnership for New Americans and is being hosted by CASA de Maryland in 2012. Now in its fifth year, the conference has grown in size, scope, and vision every year since 2008.
