In a new  blog post,  ESC board chair Ashok B. Boghani shares his thoughts from a powerful April forum at The Boston Foundation,  "Our Shared Future: Charting a Path for Immigrant Advancement in a New Political Landscape."

Some of the key takeaways from the session were:
  • The foreign born accounted for all population growth in Boston 1980 to 2000
  • The foreign born hold 27% of jobs in Suffolk County
  • Foreign-born workers generated 24% of Suffolk County's economic output in 2015
Read  the full post for more takeaways and information. ESC is ready to work with all nonprofits and is keenly aware of the difficulties facing immigrant groups.
