Immigrant Integration

In 2011, OneAmerica, in collaboration with the National Partnership for New Americans, hosted the 4th Annual National Immigrant Integration Conference 2011 (NIIC). NIIC 2011 provided an opportunity to bring together over 700 policymakers, practitioners, refugee resettlement professionals, faith leaders, elected officials and government employees, funders, organizers, researchers, business representatives, and others stakeholders from across the country to think and learn together about immigrant integration.

Immigrant Integration

Immigrant Integration is a dynamic, two-way process in which immigrants and the receiving society work together to build secure, vibrant, and cohesive communities. As an intentional effort, integration engages and transforms all community members, reaping shared benefits and creating a new whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Washington State has had a long history of welcoming immigrants and bringing them into the greater community. We have understood that we need to include all members of our community and foster their ability to contribute to the economy and society.
