Video: What We Learned at Welcoming Interactive 2016

Welcoming America | May 16, 2016

 

 

The first Welcoming Interactive explored major themes affecting our local communities including achieving equity for everyone, combating anti-Muslim bias, and the importance of lifting up shared values. In our new video, you can hear directly from participants about how they can apply what they have learned in their own communities.

Whether you attended the Interactive or not, Welcoming America can help you strengthen your inclusion work locally through our Welcoming Institute.

Forward-thinking communities around the country are recognizing that being welcoming to new Americans makes them more economically competitive and vibrant places for all residents. The growing trend of actively welcoming new Americans, counter to divisive rhetoric, shows that immigrant inclusion is thriving at the local level. Welcoming America helps communities to build understanding between host communities and newcomers, so that everyone can participate, thrive, and feel a sense of belonging.
