Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week and beyond!

Welcoming WeekNeighbors all across Nebraska came together this Welcoming Week – virtually as well as physically – to celebrate, learn together, and take strides in creating communities where everybody can belong.

DancersNebraskans hosted close to 30 events across more than eight communities, joining the growing movement to create more welcoming communities through intentional actions, practices, and policies. Immigrants, refugees, long-time residents, and community members of all backgrounds found imaginative ways to bring people together across lines of difference to develop greater understanding and mutual support, and to affirm that Belonging Begins With Us!

Whether it is cooking up recipes, dancing at a local Hispanic Heritage festival, or coming together for shared learning in the Creating Communities of Belonging summer series finale or with the Courageous Mujer Podcast, Nebraskans shared a common message: Belonging begins with us.
