We are proud to convene We The People, the ninth annual National Immigrant Integration Conference (NIIC) on December 11-13 in Nashville, Tennessee. The conference attracts the leading policymakers, advocates, and direct service providers in the immigrant integration field. This year’s program will address the most relevant topics in integration through program tracks and plenaries.

For the first-time in NIIC's history, we debuted a Call for Proposals this year. Our goal was to solicit session proposals that would bring fresh ideas and new contributors to the NIIC. For background information about NIIC 2015 and what has typically been featured at NIIC, please click here.


2016 marks NIIC’s ninth year of leading the conversation and strategy about immigrant integration in the United States. Over 1,400 people attended the 2015 NIIC -- New American Dreams: Advancing Opportunity, Equality & Justice -- that was held in New York City December 13-15, 2015.
