California Immigrant Integration Initiative (CIII)
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us at the CIII retreat.
Following the CIII retreat, the legal services learning lab hosted a learning lab for funders for an important conversation on the move to end detention. Participants were moved by our inspirational leaders from across the country who are fighting to end the policy and practice of immigration detention.

Data Hits: California's Immigrants Make Significant Contributions to the State Economy; Poverty More Prevalent Among Children of Working Immigrant Families
Three new Data Hits from the Budget Center highlight the significant contributions that California's immigrants make to the state economy and that children of working immigrant families are far more likely to live in poverty than other children.
This report illustrates the paradox between immigrant contributions to our workforce and the structural barriers that shut out thousands of Californians from economic opportunity. The brief calls for policies to ensure investments in workforce development work to support every Californian, regardless of status, to provide for themselves and their families.
