Thank you for helping make NIIC 2015 such a great success! NIIC Co-Hosts, the National Partnership for New Americans and the New York Immigration Coalition, along with our Executive Committee members, Make the Road NY and the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, are grateful to you and everyone else for making the largest immigrant integration gathering in the country the greatest one ever.
In case you missed an event or want to share some highlights with friends and colleagues, we have documented NIIC 2015 in many ways. Here is a compilation of videos featuring plenaries, our keynote by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, special remarks by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, and U.S. Representative Luis V. Gutierrez, and the #NIIC Presidential Forum, featuring three candidates vying for the U.S Presidency, Secretary Hillary Clinton, Governor Martin O'Malley, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. We recorded audio from even more presentations and remarks, so visit NIIC's SoundCloud page to choose from those options.
Catch NIIC 2015 participants like yourself in action in these photo albums of Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3. Huge thanks to our photography team of Carolina Kroon, Stephen Yang, Anja Hitzenberger, and Danica Mrozinsky for helping capture the power of our community!
Our collective research, advocacy, expertise, and political might generated over 100 media hits across the country, highlights posted here, including The New York Times, Associated Press, The Guardian, The Washington Post, NBC News, Huffington Post, Fox News Latino, and the Wall St. Journal. #NIIC was trending on Twitter in Brooklyn during the conference with over 2,000 Tweets per day sharing what we were learning and who we were meeting.
