About The National Partnership for New Americans

The National Immigrant Integration Conference is a signature event of the National Partnership for New Americans, which advances the integration and active citizenship of immigrants to achieve a vibrant, just, and welcoming democracy for all.

The New Americans Partnership vision is an authentic and welcoming democracy in which new Americans achieve equal opportunity and are a powerful and organized constituency. Policies and programs at all levels will foster a high quality of life for all, and new Americans will vote, hold office and participate fully in civic life and economic prosperity.
