What’s happening on Welcoming Week in your community?

Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week is a chance for neighbors — both immigrants and U.S.-born residents — to come together, get to know one another, and celebrate what unites us as a community!

This year’s theme for Welcoming Week is “Creating Home Together.” Home is not just a house — it’s any place where you feel safe and accepted: in your neighborhood, in your community, or at school or work. In this pandemic, we may be redefining where home is, what makes us feel at home, or how to make home a more inclusive and equitable place for all. This Welcoming Week, let’s build home in new ways through virtual spaces, digital sharing, and being together even when we’re apart! You can participate in events happening locally, across the state, and across the country!

Welcoming Week is September 12th-20th

    • September 12 at 2pm CT/ 1pm MT
