Welcoming America is a national network that connects community, government, and nonprofit leaders to help them make their communities more inclusive places.
Welcoming Week is an annual initiative of Welcoming America that this year will see hundreds of events happen between September 14th and 28th, 2018. Communities bring together immigrants, refugees, and native-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.
Celebrate Welcoming Week, and show the world how your community welcomes everyone, including immigrants and refugees. Together, we can make every community the kind of place where diverse people from around the world feel valued and want to put down roots. Together, we can build a nation of neighbors.
In 2017, there were over 700 events in 300 communities during Welcoming Week, with more than 50,000 people participating and over 14 million social media impressions. By hosting a Welcoming Week event, you are part of a movement of more and more communities across the United States and the world who recognize that being a welcoming community for all makes us stronger economically, socially, and culturally.
