2nd Annual Meeting of Immigrant Local Officials

Communications Training – Opening Doors to Meaningful Dialogue

During the second annual meeting of immigrant local officials at the League of California Cities Annual Conference in September 2010 the Institute of Local Government partnered with the Asian Pacific Islander and Latino Caucuses of the League to offer a workshop on framing and effective re-framing techniques to encourage a constructive dialogue among and about immigrant residents.

Isabel Alegria, Communications Director, California Immigrant Policy Center, facilitated the workshop that helped participants explore ways to open the door to a more informed, rational and meaningful dialogue in local communities.

In addition to skill development, local officials were able to network, share stories and access immigrant integration resources.
