Cities of Migration congratulates the Welcome Back Initiative, 2011 winner of the E Pluribus Unum Award!

We profiled the Welcome Back to a Healthier Community in San Francisco as a Good Idea because of its work to close gaps in immigrant access to healthcare by connecting internationally-trained health care professionals to employment.

We also featured the program in our webinar, Healthy Communities: Immigrants Helping Immigrants Access Healthcare.

Listen to Welcome Back Initiative’s webinar presentation by Founder and Director, José Ramón Fernández-Peña:

On May 17, 2011, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) announced the winners of the third annual E Pluribus Unum Prizes, which recognize and honour exceptional immigrant integration initiatives around the United States, with a public awards ceremony in Washington, DC, featuring a keynote address by US Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

The E Pluribus Unum Prizes program is administered by MPI’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy with support from the J.M. Kaplan Fund. MPI received hundreds of applications from a large variety of outstanding initiatives, hinting at the volume and diversity of immigrant integration programs working at the state and local level across a range of domains: including language instruction, immigrant entrepreneurship, and refugee resettlement. All best practices are characterized by the potential to be replicated by others elsewhere.

E Pluribus Unum means ‘Out of Many, One.’
