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.
The conference schedule included: optional site visits on July 16; and plenary panels and workshops on July 17 and 18.
This event was generously supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. This program was also made possible through the generous support of the SC Ministry Foundation, which promotes the mission and ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati.
