Are immigrants committing crimes at higher rates than the U.S.-born? How do we better integrate law enforcement and newcomers to build more trusting relationships? And how best do we inform our communities about immigrants and immigration facts?

Get the answers in Building United Communities: Immigrants, Cops and Crime, the latest free webinar from The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) Public Education Institute in Malden, MA. Hear from experts in law enforcement, immigrant integration and research while sharing your ideas with participants from around the country. This highly interactive webinar offers the latest, most credible data to dispel immigration myths especially as they relate to the economy, schools and crime. It features a panel of experts giving proven strategies of engaging with immigrants to become their allies through strong, trusting relationships. Given the highly divisive public discourse, the webinar will also give research-based messaging techniques for talking about immigrants in local communities.

This interactive webinar is free-of-charge and for immigrant-serving, faith and community organizations as well as law enforcement. See below for presenters and computer requirements.
