The E Pluribus Unum Prizes recognize outstanding immigrant integration initiatives of all types in the United States, whether led by nonprofit or community organizations, businesses, public agencies, religious groups, or individuals.
The awards program, which was launched in 2009, is coordinated by MPI's National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy—a hub for those who seek to build their knowledge and skills in the area of immigrant integration. In 2012, the program awarded three $50,000 prizes and one Corporate Leadership Award. The 2013 prize winners will be announced and honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on December 4.
The J.M. Kaplan Fund is generously providing support for these awards to focus attention on successful integration initiatives and to inspire and provide program models to others around the United States who might also undertake such efforts.
