Beyond Borders 2023 Conference

The Portland Public Schools' Multilingual and Multicultural Center will host Beyond Borders: A Conference on Migration and Integration on Wednesday, September 27th, 2023 at the University of Southern Maine in Portland. The conference will focus on the successful integration in the economic, social, cultural, and political life of immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants to the United States, specifically in Maine.

Keynote address and breakout sessions will be led by experts on immigration, PreK-16 education, workforce development, and health and social services.

We welcome attendees from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, including educators, policymakers, entrepreneurs, business leaders, members of community-based organizations, and individuals.
