Congress of Cities Program to Include Look at Immigrant Integration in Localities


Gambetta, Ricardo, Lantz, Corilyn, Nation's Cities Weekly


Programming during the Congress of Cities and Exposition, November 9-12 in Phoenix, will provide training and education to support constructive local action to integrate immigrants into the economic, social and cultural fabric of cities. Promoting immigrant integration through civic engagement and immigrant outreach creates a positive relationship between local governments and their immigrant communities.

Conference programming will connect with NLC's Immigrant Integration Program, which fosters a knowledge-sharing network centered on discussing methods of improving relationships between cities and their immigrant communities.

At the Congress of Cities, NLC will also explore the impact that immigration has on communities and constructive local action in cities across the country across the conference programming, which includes the general conference and four concurrent conferences focusing on economic development, green cities, infrastructure and Your City's Families.

NLC has consistently reaffirmed its decision to hold the annual Congress of Cities in Phoenix as a show of support for the city. NLC has joined Phoenix in opposing the state of Arizona's anti-immigration law and has repeatedly called for Congress and the Administration to act quickly to enact comprehensive immigration reform.

Specifically, NLC's Immigrant Integration program has organized the following activities during the conference:

* Thursday, November 10, 9:00 a.m.-noon: Leadership Training Institute (LTI) seminar on Public Safety and Immigrant Communities;

* Friday, November 11, 10:15 a.m.-noon: The Trust Factor: Engaging Youth and Families of Diverse Communities;

* Friday, November 11, 1:30 p.m.-2:45 p.m.: Sustainable, Inclusive Communities: Engaging Communities for Equitable Development;

* Friday, November 11, 3:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m.: Supporting Immigrant Small Business; and

* Friday, November 11, 4:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m.: The Patchogue Story, "Not in our Town: Light in the Darkness" film presentation and panel discussion.

Focusing on various aspects of immigration in local communities, these events will offer a safe space to analyze, discuss, and compare issues that heavily affect communities and their immigrant populations.
