This year, Welcoming Week celebrates its 10th anniversary with the theme “Where We Belong.” Since 2012, thousands of Nebraskans have participated through the arts, music, community meals, recipe exchanges, voter registration, and more —growing to more than 30 events in at least 8 communities and signaling broad commitment to welcoming values across our state.
Join us in 2022 to recognize and celebrate the people, places, and values that ensure everyone feels welcome and that they belong, no matter where they come from. Khenda and I are glad to talk with you and help to plan what you can do in your community!
You can find our contact information and some ideas to get your started below.
