Bold immigrant rights advocates. Innovative business leaders. Visionary community leaders. Dedicated service providers. Forward-thinking policy makers. Expert researchers, students and educators. Imaginative artists and culture shapers. All attend the National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC) — and they help to shape it. Each year, experts from across the country volunteer their time to build a NIIC program that explores the most relevant questions in immigrant integration. This year is no exception, and we are lucky that many of the foremost leaders in the field are working to create the most dynamic NIIC yet.
Nisha Agarwal, Commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), is a co-lead of NIIC 2015’s Citizenship Track. Her new American dream “is for families – including immigrant families – to be able to realize their full potential in this country, regardless of immigration status, language, or the opportunities available to them in their country of origin.”
Jeremy Carter, Chief Development Officer at the National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders (NALCAB), co-leads NIIC 2015’s Business and Financial Empowerment Track. Jeremy tells us that his new American dream “is that our nation becomes a place where my children can take pride in their rich Guatemalan heritage without fear of being labeled by others as anything less than American.”
