Great ideas come to Seattle - Registration is now open!
The National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC) 2011 will bring together over 600 people, from seasoned practitioners and policy makers to new allies, in Seattle. Participants will deepen their understanding of immigrant integration, share promising practices, discuss key challenges and strategize on future directions, and attend capacity building trainings. We promise you will be inspired by the great work from around the country and come away ready to tackle the challenges of building a stronger democracy as we launch a new decade for immigrant integration.

OneAmerica, formerly Hate Free Zone, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advances the fundamental principles of democracy and justice by building power within immigrant communities.
The National Partnership for New Americans advances the integration and active citizenship of immigrants to achieve a vibrant, just, and welcoming democracy for all. Our vision is an authentic and welcoming democracy in which new Americans achieve equal opportunity and are a powerful and organized constituency. Policies and programs at all levels will foster a high quality of life for all, and new Americans will vote, hold office and participate fully in civic life and economic prosperity.
