Immigration and Metro Chicago: Lessons of Inclusion from the Windy City
The Chicago area has a rich history of immigration, a story that continues to this day: 1.6 million of the 9 million residents in metro Chicago are immigrants. Chicago has also been recognized as one of the most immigrant-friendly cities in the country, with various local government initiatives and a network of non-profit actors that work to create an environment of inclusion.

Following the recently published report “A Global Welcome: Metro Chicago’s Approach to Immigrant Inclusion,” Welcoming America and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs invite you to a Zoom livestream event during which panelists will discuss the lessons learned in Chicago and how these policies of inclusion can be implemented in other contexts and cities.

Join our expert panel as they explore and discuss this important topic on Thursday, October 22nd, from 2 - 3 pm ET.
