Immigrant Integration Webinars

Immigration seems to be a perennial hot topic. Even those who work with immigrants can have a hard time keeping up with the issues.

 


 

The ILC Public Education Institute brings the latest research and best practices for today’s immigration issues to educators, immigrant-serving organizations, faith communities and the public through free webinars.

Topics have included Immigrants, Cops and Crime; Building United Communities of Immigrants and African Americans; Integration Strategies from Faith Organizations; and Taking Back the Narrative. All webinars include the latest data on U.S. immigration and best practices for getting your message across.

Materials from the November 2017 webinar titled One Year Later: Immigrant Trauma and How to Deal with It are listed below followed by a wealth of resources from our webinar series.

New webinars are added several times a year.
