Update! It is not too late, just let them know how you are feeling about all this over the weekend, some of our readers have done so.
Just received this notice from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (we told you about it here previously):
As you all know, in November 2014, the President created a White House Task Force on New Americans. The goal of the Task Force is to develop a federal immigrant and refugee integration strategy that allows new Americans to contribute to society to their fullest potential and bring new Americans together with their receiving communities to strengthen communities.
Yesterday, the White House issued a Blog post highlighting the creation of the Task Force.
Additionally, the blog is intended to serve as a Call For Ideas to help shape the focus of the federal immigration and refugee integration strategy. The White House created a specific email account for gathering stakeholder ideas; Please send your ideas, big or small, to NewAmericans@who.eop.gov by February 9th, 2015.
In the effort to lift up attention to the blog and the call for new ideas, please consider sharing far and wide with your networks and partners. Thank you!
