Our mission is to create a connected, inclusive community, where Atlantans are afforded equal opportunities and meaningfully engage in civic life, regardless of language or country of origin. 

Our Vision is to enhance the quality of life for all Atlantans through programs and policies that improve the day to day lives of new arrivals and foster a connected community of all Atlantans.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs ensures that Mayor Bottoms' vision of an affordable, resilient and equitable One Atlanta is inclusive of Atlanta's foreign-born community.  Key priorities include cultural competency and language access training, community-driven programming that exposes foreign-born communities to government services, and policy initiatives the promote making Atlanta a safe, welcoming and inclusive city.
