Immigrant Integration Task Force
Notify me update tool

On November 25, 2013, Charlotte City Council adopted a resolution to create an inter-agency Immigrant Integration Task Force to maximize immigrants’ economic and civic contributions to the city of Charlotte.

In 2014, the 29-member task force will review the recommendations of the 2007 Mayor’s Immigration Study Commission; research and recommend policies that facilitate access to city services for all residents of Charlotte, while addressing gaps in civic engagement; prepare a report with recommendations to the City Council that promotes awareness among the public of the availability of existing programs and services facilitating immigrant integration; and seek opportunities to better educate the Charlotte community on how embracing immigrant communities will help move the city forward.

Upcoming Task Force Meetings:
Date:         Thursday, December 18, 2014
Time:         3:00 - 5:00 p.m.  RSVP
Location:   The Belmont Center
