2018 Whole-of-Community Conference | Session IV: Litigation and Other Strategies

In July 2018, scholars, researchers, community organizers, service providers, local officials, leaders of faith communities, immigrant advocates, and others gathered together 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 examined “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 also helped participants identify and bolster their legal support, research, and capacity needs in addressing these issues.
