The Welcoming Economies (WE) Global Network is thrilled to announce this year’s keynote speaker: Felicia Escobar, White House Special Assistant to the President for Immigration Policy!
Ms. Escobar will deliver the keynote address for our 3rd Annual Convening on July 9 at the Dayton Convention Center. She will discuss the White House Task Force on New Americans and the new federal action plan, which seeks to make every American feel welcome – and make communities stronger in the process. The Taskforce recognizes and seeks to expand local initiatives like those in the WE Global Network, and Ms. Escobar will share more about ongoing federal efforts to engage with local communities on immigrant integration and economic development.
Ms. Escobar has been a key staff person for President Obama on immigration policy and the creation and implementation of the first-ever federal immigrant integration policy.
