Register for the 2016 Catholic Institutions and Immigrant Integration Conference

The 2016 annual gathering on Catholic Institutions and Immigrant Integration (CIII) is planned for November 28-30, 2016 in San Diego. The first two days will consist of keynotes and interactive workshops at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego. The last day will include site visits in San Diego and Tijuana.

The project seeks to identify, study, and support a growing network of diverse Catholic institutions that are implementing successful programs and ministries with immigrants. The project’s overall goals are to improve and expand the work of Catholic institutions on immigrant integration, empowerment, and well-being. The conference will:

  • Speak to the theological vision that underlies the Church’s work on immigrant integration;
  • Lift up important research on the work of Church institutions with immigrants, and link academics/researchers with leaders from diverse Catholic institutions;
  • Promote effective models of immigrant integration; and
  • Dialogue on Catholic advocacy opportunities and strategies in light of the Presidential election.
