Immigrant Heritage Month
Immigrant Heritage Month Press Release Immigrant Heritage Month Proclamation
We also observe June 20 as World Refugee Day, a day to raise awareness about the struggle of refugees around the world and their fight for human rights.
The Office of Global Michigan (OGM) was created to help grow Michigan's economy by retaining and attracting global talent; to promote the skills, energy, and entrepreneurial spirit of our immigrant and refugee communities; and, strives to make Michigan a more welcoming state. Consistent with that vision, the office supports immigrant and refugee integration initiatives for the state.
OGM is responsible for two programs: the Michigan International Talent Solutions (MITS) program and the state refugee services program. Additionally, it aligns closely with the three state ethnic commissions - the Hispanic/Latino Commission, Michigan Asian Pacific American Affairs Commission and the Commission on Middle Eastern American Affairs.
