With comprehensive immigration reform on the horizon, cities across the United States are working on ways to integrate and ensure the success of their immigrant communities.
The New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) convened over 20 cities from all over the United States to discuss best practices in immigrant integration in April 2013. MOIA has created a set of open-source Blueprints for Immigrant Integration. The shared innovative strategies can be employed by local governments to foster economic, civic and cultural vibrancy by promoting the well-being and integration of immigrants.
The Cities for Immigrant Integration Convening and the open-source Blueprints will build a network of cities committed to serving and enhancing immigrant communities.
