Our region is vibrant, growing, and remarkably diverse. Today, 50% of all children in Northern Virginia live in immigrant families, and the positive impact of these families on our region’s economy is significant. There is a powerful case for extending ladders of opportunity, building bridges between newcomers and long term residents, and growing a culture of inclusivity that will continue to shape a prosperous future for us all.
