Please join us on December 4 for a ceremony and reception honoring this year's recipients of the E Pluribus Unum Prizes, our national awards program providing $50,000 prizes to exceptional US immigrant integration initiatives. Preceding the reception and awards ceremony, we will convene a panel discussion, featuring several leading government officials, focusing on integration policy opportunities and challenges associated with potential immigration reform measures.

The E Pluribus Unum Prizes honor exemplary immigrant integration initiatives and seek to inspire and provide models to others who are working to help immigrants and their children join the mainstream of US society and build stronger ties between immigrant and native-born communities.

The success of US immigration policy ultimately turns on the effectiveness of integration for the nation's nearly 41 million immigrants. Creative efforts to promote immigrant integration are occurring in thousands of communities, whether in adult English and job training classes at local community colleges and businesses; in schools, faith-based organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies; in neighborhood councils where immigrant- and native-born residents work together to address common problems; and in countless other initiatives that seek to promote the economic, social, and civic integration of immigrants with mainstream society.

Please join us to celebrate this important work.
