  • We are committed to raising the level of public discourse concerning immigrants and immigration, so that public policies are designed in an environment of mutual respect.
  • We are committed to better understanding the contributions that immigrants make to our state and the effects of immigration on our communities, and to challenging common myths and stereotypes
