Community in Unity: Immigration & Integration

More and more people are moving to Alaska from other parts of the world both as immigrants and refugees. They contribute to the local community and economy. How do we, as a community, make their transitions more successful and the community more welcoming? How do people both preserve their cultures and integrate into Alaska?
