Creating a welcoming community for immigrants can help to create a more healthy community for everyone, and such efforts to create health equity ensure that immigrants and refugees can participate fully and belong. Our white paper provides recommendations to help communities pursue a combined health equity and immigrant inclusion agenda. 

The world is on the move, bringing diverse people to U.S. communities. Global migration provides an opportunity for local communities to welcome new talent and recognize the importance of an inclusive and dynamic approach. Forward-thinking communities reflect upon what these changes mean locally and how to foster a community climate in which all are welcome and can contribute to their fullest potential.

For individuals looking to encourage their community to declare their intent to be an inclusive place for all, including immigrants and refugees, a symbolic welcoming proclamation is a great place to start.

Consider forming a group that's not only diverse in background but also in the role they play in your community, long-term residents, newcomers, business and civic leaders, and educators, to stand behind an affirmation of values. It's important that a welcoming statement be non-partisan and inclusive of all, including immigrants and U.S.-born community members.

Our multilingual Welcoming Week Postcards are a fun and easy way to show community support for everyone, including immigrants and refugees, and lift up our shared values.

This tool is intended to help advocates for immigrant integration communicate how welcoming our immigrant neighbors can be a force for economic growth.
