KeepingCurrent: The Integration of Immigrants in Virginia

June 4 | 1 p.m. EDT

Are you curious about how immigrants integrate in the United States and what barriers they face in their integration journey? Make sure you attend this webinar! Our presenters will provide findings from a study that examined the integration of immigrants in Virginia: where they settle, what languages they speak, which countries they come from and what barriers to integration they face. You'll also hear about some policy recommendations that would facilitate a speedier integration of immigrants. After all, well-integrated immigrants enable states to reap benefits in the form of higher tax revenues to public coffers, and happier, productive and more engaged new members of the society.

Presenters:
Saltanat Liebert, Associate Professor, Virginia Commonwealth University
Grant Rissler, Affiliate Faculty, Virginia Commonwealth University
