Shape of the Region logo

NVRC is pleased to co-host with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia and other regional partners the 2020 Shape of the Region Conference. NVRC will release the findings of its study on the economic impact of immigrants on the region.

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 the region’s economy is significant. There is a powerful case for extending ladders of opportunity, building bridges between newcomers and long-term residents, and grown a culture of inclusivity that will continue to share a prosperous future for us all.

The event will take place on Thursday, March 12 from 8 to 11:45 AM at the Ernst Cultural Center, Northern Virginia Community College, 8333 Little River Turnpike in Annandale.
