This holiday season, the Center for Immigrant Integration is most thankful for organizations that work diligently to make sure newcomers feel at home and excel in their new communities. Whether it is the Gateways for Growth Challenge helping cities become more welcoming to immigrants, or the Immigrant Learning Center working to heal immigrants’ emotional wounds that have worsened since the administration change, all efforts to make our communities more inclusive are greatly appreciated.
New CLINIC Resources and Stories:
Since 2015, the Gateways for Growth Challenge has been helping cities of all sizes excel at making their communities more welcoming for immigrants.
Outside Events, Webinars, and Resources:
