IINE was founded on the belief that in order for a community to thrive, it must welcome and truly embrace all those who embody it.

Our organization is dedicated to building and promoting welcoming communities that recognize the value of every person: refugee, immigrant, and U.S.-born, of every race, religion, and cultural background.

The events of the past few days make one central truth painfully clear: we all have to work with more clarity, intention, and courage to openly acknowledge and combat racism and inequality.

We stand today and every day in solidarity with the struggle of Black Americans, and we call, wholeheartedly, for systemic change.
