Cutting-edge strategies. Creative approaches. Thought leaders shaping the national conversation. Practitioners innovating on the ground everyday. Culture makers and business leaders, advocates and researchers working together. That – and more – is what you can expect at the National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC 2015).
Through over 50 sessions at NIIC – in our 11 issue-area tracks, 5 main-stage plenaries and numerous affinity group caucuses – NIIC 2015 will create the space to ask hard questions, build relationships and craft lasting solutions together. We are excited to share this first glance at our schedule for the conference, which kicks off Sunday, December 13 at 1:30pm and runs through Tuesday, December 15 at 5pm.
Here are just a few of the NIIC 2015 session highlights to look for:
• Immigrants and the Public Imagination
• Empowering Immigrant and Refugee Entrepreneurs through Financial Inclusion
• Global Integration Trends and the Path Forward
• Making the Law Work for Us: Winning Pro-Worker, Pro-Immigrant Policies and Building the Power to Make Them Real
• Intersections Across Our Citizenship Movement
• Educational & Workforce Success for DACA Youth: Making the Most of DACA’s Promise
• Decriminalize. Decarcerate. Liberate.
• New Voices in the Media: Non-English and Ethnic Media
• Shifting Cultures on Immigration, Identity and Race
But that’s not all. NIIC 2015 will also feature opportunities to learn about New York City’s diverse immigrant communities through NIIC <3 Immigrant NY Tours across the city, film screenings, a conference Expo and more.
The stakes to build a truly welcoming, just and comprehensive approach to immigrant integration couldn’t be higher at this pivotal moment. Be part of the conversation that will shape the policies, platforms and practices America needs.
