GINI Blueprint

The GINI Blueprint provides an action plan with goals and recommendations towards creating an inclusive and safe community for immigrants. We believe the steps outlined in this plan should serve as a foundation for future policies coming from the City and County. Specific metrics for the recommendations, as well as best practices and flow charts are available as part of the GINI Blueprint Tool Box.
