Office of New Americans Network

Together with the American Immigration Council (AIC), WES has fostered the development of a growing Office of New Americans (ONA) network. The ONA network provides a forum for state policy leaders to drive positive change that supports immigrant integration into the workforce and economy. The ONA network spans the nation.

Creating Opportunities for Collaboration

The ONA state network provides state policy leaders an opportunity to come together to share best practices in immigrant integration and act as a critical anchor to help immigrants fully integrate into their new communities. In addition to supporting the work of existing state offices and immigration policy staff, the ONA state network extends peer-to-peer mentoring, coaching, and research to officials from other states exploring the possibility of establishing a state-level Office of New Americans, a task force, or a dedicated staff position on immigrant integration issues.
