    Fredrikson & Byron, PA
    200 South 6th Street, Suite 4000, Minneapolis, MN 55402

    Whether immigration reform occurs or not, integration of immigrants in new communities is an essential component to building a successful immigration system. The panel will provide insight on how we can move from immigration reform delays to immigration integration by examining how immigration creates economic mobility, the social and legal barriers and challenges facing immigrants; the need for outreach, elimination of bias or prejudice in the administration of the law and legal services, advocacy work in our communities to ensure equal justice and access; and how community initiatives promote integration.

    An application for 1.0 Elimination of Bias CLE Credit has been submitted.
