Stronger Together: An Economic Messaging Toolkit from Welcoming America
Learn about how to make the case for shared prosperity through welcoming immigrants in this new communications toolkit from Welcoming America.
In this new toolkit, you’ll find:
- New messages to help you communicate in ways that resonate with businesses, governments, and other community members
- Tools to identify key audiences and frame an appropriate message for them
- Ideas and pitfalls to avoid when using economic arguments
Although the messages recommended in this toolkit are pragmatic in nature and focused on the economic benefits a community receives by welcoming immigrants, each of them is still rooted in the core values of the welcoming movement—the belief that we are all better off when everyone who lives in a community feels like a part of it.
