New Americans in Our Economy

About The Webinar

The economic divide between the New American community and the native-born is tremendous. According to a recent study, immigrant households in Columbus earn almost 25% less than native-born households, with over 155,000 new Americans calling the Columbus region home. The Columbus Chamber Foundation is partnering with Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS) and Jewish Family Services to uncover and address some of the contributing factors to this disparity. With the generous support of NiSource Charitable Foundation | Columbia Gas A NiSource Company, we are happy to bring you a quarterly series dedicated to discussion and solutions.
