Charlotte Donors Forum Meeting: Immigration Trends and How We Can Welcome and Serve our Immigrant Communities

Charlotte is one of the fastest-growing large cities in America.  Over the past three decades, the city has also become an increasingly popular destination for those immigrating to the United States. According to the most recent Census estimates, more than 16% of Charlotte residents are foreign-born.  Given this rapid demographic shift, local leaders have been working to ensure Charlotte is an immigrant-friendly community, accommodating the realities and needs of immigrants and their families.

 

Details

 
As the first part of a two-part conversation, the Charlotte Donors Forum invites you to join us for lunch to hear from Federico Rios, The City of Charlotte’s Assistant Director, Office of Equity, Mobility, and Immigrant Integration.  Mr. Rios will provide an overview of Charlotte’s current and historical immigration trends and offer insight into the City’s efforts to be a welcoming place that is supportive of the civic and economic contributions of immigrants.  As the City’s liaison to a variety of community stakeholders, Mr. Rios will also discuss organizations responding to legal, health, educational, and social integration needs of these communities as well as other emerging issues that philanthropy might help address.
 
Please join us on Tuesday, September 17 for the conversation with Mr. Rios and hold November 12, 2019 (invitation to follow) for further discussion.  The November 12 luncheon will offer a chance to learn about the work of several organizations addressing the legal, health and wellness, and educational needs of Charlotte’s immigrant children, youth, and families.  *Please note that attendance at both are not required to benefit from the discussions.
