Partnering with Local Government

As more immigrants arrive in different communities across the United States, states and localities have created programs, policies, and funding opportunities in order to assist their new neighbors. This panel, which will include partners from state and local government, will focus on how communities can welcome immigrants. Learn about collaboration efforts that have occurred in Minnesota and elsewhere in order to integrate new Americans into the workforce, expand their access to immigration legal services, language access, educational opportunities, and many other vital resources.
