About this Event: 

On Friday, June 2, 2023, Towson University and the Baltimore Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MIMA) will host the 10th Baltimore Immigration Summit, returning after a three-year hiatus. The theme of the 2023 event is “Working Towards Equity: Strength and Transformation in Immigrant Communities.” Our keynote speaker is Krish O’Mara Vignarajah. Krish is the President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS). 

The Baltimore Immigration Summit is a one-day event that brings together academics, policymakers, service providers, activists, community leaders, and others working with and for New Americans (immigrants and refugees) in our region. Baltimore and its surrounding suburbs represent an area with a growing and diverse New American population, and local governments view New Americans as essential to the region's ongoing resurgence. We invite you to join us in celebrating the continued work of welcoming New Americans in the Baltimore area and discovering new opportunities for collaboration!

Morning coffee and pastries as well as a family style lunch will be included. The event will be located at West Village Commons, and you may park for free at West Village Garage. Attendees will be able to choose from a variety of panel presentations. (Preliminary agenda) The full detailed schedule will be released in May on our website. Best of all, this event is completely FREE!
