General Information

The Baltimore Immigration Summit is a one-day event that brings together academics, policymakers, service providers, activists, community leaders, and others working with and for New Americans (immigrants and refugees) in our region. Baltimore and its surrounding suburbs represent an area with a growing and diverse New American population, and local governments view New Americans as essential to the region's ongoing resurgence.

The conference location alternates each year, one year in Baltimore County at Towson University, and the next year it is hosted in Baltimore City. This shows the ongoing partnership between Baltimore county and city to serve New Americans.
