Promoting Just and Inclusive Communities in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana: A “Whole of Community” Approach to Immigrants and Refugees

July 16, 2018 - July 18, 2018

Join scholars, researchers, community organizers, service providers, local officials, leaders of faith communities, immigrant advocates, and others for a three-day event on how diverse groups in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana are working together to meet the needs of immigrant communities. This event will examine “whole of community” responses to welcoming, integrating, and protecting immigrants, lift up models and best practices, and provide opportunities for further community-focused collaborations. It will also help participants identify and bolster their legal support, research, and capacity needs in addressing these issues.

The conference schedule includes: optional site visits on July 16; and plenary panels and workshops on July 17 and 18. The full agenda and list of speakers will be available soon.

The conference fee of $50 includes lunch and refreshments throughout the event. To register, visit https://cmsnewyork.eventbee.com/event?eid=107761232.
