On November 25, 2013, Charlotte City Council adopted a resolution to create an inter-agency Immigrant Integration Task Force to maximize immigrants’ economic and civic contributions to the city of Charlotte.
In 2014, the 29-member task force will review the recommendations of the 2007 Mayor’s Immigration Study Commission; research and recommend policies that facilitate access to city services for all residents of Charlotte, while addressing gaps in civic engagement; prepare a report with recommendations to the City Council that promotes awareness among the public of the availability of existing programs and services facilitating immigrant integration; and seek opportunities to better educate the Charlotte community on how embracing immigrant communities will help move the city forward.
To move this initiative forward, the task force has created an online survey, to receive feedback from the community. As part of Action NC's commitment to helping move this work forward and make it easier for the community to fill out the survey, we are putting the direct like to the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7CJMVQJ
