Thank you for joining us last week in Phoenix for NIIC 2017 - AND JUSTICE FOR ALL - to engage in the largest convening of immigrant and refugee leaders and advocates in the country. With over 1,000 participants, 170+ speakers, 50 breakout sessions, and 14 tracks, this marked our biggest and most inspiring NIIC yet thanks to you!
We hope you enjoyed your last day at NIIC, including the power-packed closing Plenary, The Path Forward: Organizing and Democracy featuring Dolores Huerta, Congressman Luis Gutierrez, Robert Moses, Heather Booth and moderated by Maria Hinojosa. Looking back over 50+ years of civil rights struggles - for immigrants, refugees, people of color and women - and to the urgencies of today, people power, and power in our commitment to our democracy rang out loud and clear.
We have more than 1,000 thank yous -- to all who helped make NIIC 2017 possible! To our Arizona and national partners, our Executive Committee and Sponsors, Track Leads and speakers, our performers and volunteers and all in Phoenix who helped make the conference run so well: thank you.
Thank you for your support and partnership, your continuous work to protect, strengthen, and integrate immigrants and refugees into our country. We know there will be many fights ahead and we are proud to be in them with you, including our collective work fighting to pass the DREAM Act this week.
Check NIIC Facebook in the coming days for photo albums of all the action thanks to our amazing photographers Carolina Kroon and Phil Soto -- they captured our time together with vision and heart.
And help us make the next NIIC even better! Please take 5 minutes to complete this brief survey and let us know what you enjoyed and how we can make improvements.
We hope to see you at NIIC 2018 and to work side by side with you all year long!
