2023 National Immigrant & Citizenship Education Conference (NIICE)
Join international, federal, state, and local immigrant-serving organizations for the first-ever NIICE Conference.
The inaugural conference theme is:
THE ROAD TO ACCESS AND INCLUSION
USCIS, in partnership with the White House Task Force on New Americans (TFNA) and the Interagency Naturalization Working Group (NWG), is bringing together professionals with equities in immigrant integration and citizenship education from both the public and private sectors.
In line with Presidential Executive Order 14012, “Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration System and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans,” participants will share promising practices and analyze models under the following themes:
- Understanding immigrant integration indicators,
- Addressing barriers to integration and gaps in assistance and access, and
- Developing strategies to build a better road for the full inclusion and integration of newcomers.
NIICE Conference discussions will augment and continue the critical work of the TFNA and NWG.
More information to follow on venue, registration, and agenda. The conference is free; however, participants are responsible for transportation and lodging. The conference will take place October 17-18 in the DC area with optional pre-conference activities on October 16.
