Cambio de Colores (Change of Colors) is a multistate conference about the integration of Latinos and immigrants in new destinations. It is a professional development opportunity in which people from various fields who work with Latinos and immigrant communities come together to share research and best practices that facilitate the integration of newcomers. 

This multidisciplinary conference will focus on the challenges inherent in multicultural changing communities, including the experiences of all newcomers, faith groups, and marginalized groups. Research, community practices, and outreach strategies will also address how resilience and cross-cultural connections in changing communities support community inclusion, belonging, well-being, and prosperity.The integration of these very diverse groups is being studied by academics and pursued by stakeholders, as the newcomers seek to become part and parcel of the social, economic, and cultural fabric of their new communities.

The conference convenes public and private service providers, grassroots and advocacy organizations, education and healthcare providers, academic researchers, students and extension specialists, state and local government institutions, policymakers, corporations, and newcomers themselves.
