Overview of Task Force on New Americans
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited interested librarians to participate in a webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. (Eastern) to learn about the White House Task Force on New Americans. The Task Force is an interagency effort to develop a federal strategy to better integrate immigrants into local communities. During the presentation, representatives from the USCIS Office of Citizenship covered the Task Force’s recent initiatives, with specific focus on the Building Welcoming Communities Campaign and the Citizenship Public Education and Awareness Campaign, and highlighted ways that libraries can get involved.
