Date: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - 14:00

Today, counties across the United States are home to an increasing number of immigrants. People born outside the U.S. comprise 1 in 6 American workers. And while immigration policy is set at the national level, the daily practice of incorporating newcomers happens locally. Learn how local officials can use workforce and adult education policies as tools to strengthen economic development and foster inclusion. Hear from a municipal leader and policy advocate with longtime experience advancing policies that benefit immigrant and US-born workers alike. Bring your questions!
