City services for an inclusive Charlotte
Charlotte is a city that values and appreciates diversity, and we want our city to be welcoming and safe for all people at all times. We appreciate the many contributions immigrant populations provide to our economy and cultural experience. As we continue to learn more about federal immigration law enforcement activities, we seek to address concerns we are hearing from our immigrant neighbors and visitors. We recognize people may feel vulnerable and marginalized. There is a lot of confusion as we all try to understand these processes.
Charlotte has policies and programs aimed at easing the transition of residents from foreign countries into our community. We want our immigrant communities to be well connected with the resources we offer to reduce barriers for immigrant integration, provide learning opportunities for residents, improve immigrant trust in community policing and to celebrate business success of our foreign born residents.
