Join the Conversation: Building Integrated Communities Prospective Applicant Webinar
The Latino Migration Project invites prospective applicants to attend its Building Integrated Communities initiative informational webinar. We are pleased to have RSVP’s from municipalities across the state and look forward to a great conversation.
Prospective Applicant Webinar Meeting: March 19, 2014, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Building Integrated Communities is an initiative that strengthens civic engagement, linguistic achievement, and economic and educational advancement for immigrants in NC municipalities. This statewide initiative helps North Carolina local governments successfully engage with immigrants and refugee populations to improve public safety, promote economic development, enhance communication, and improve relationships.
Since 2010, Building Integrated Communities has worked with the cities of Greenville and High Point to create and implement citywide immigrant integration plans, the first such plans in the South. Between 2010 and 2012, more than 250 foreign-born residents representing 26 countries participated in these planning processes.
Examples of successful initiatives include the creation of city advisory committees for immigrants and interfaith leaders, bilingual city communication plans, better access to transit systems in immigrant neighborhoods, and events that build relationships and improve cultural understanding across multiple communities.
