Baltimore Immigration Summit

Friday, May 31 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Coppin State University 

The Baltimore Immigration Summit is a one-day event which brings together academics, policy makers, 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.

Restoring hope through solidarity: 9th Baltimore Immigration Summit

The theme of this year’s summit is “Restoring Hope through Solidarity,” which captures the critical nature of collaboration with and on behalf of New Americans. Additionally, this year’s theme resists the recent hateful rhetoric coming from the national stage and celebrates the ongoing good work of New Americans and their advocates in Baltimore. This work has become both more challenging and all the more critical as a result of the national climate, and this year's theme positions the Summit as a place to hear and be re-energized by narratives of hope and resilience in the Baltimore region. Join us to celebrate the work of welcoming New Americans that continues across the Baltimore Region and to discover new opportunities for collaboration!
