Building Cohesive Communities in an Era of Migration and Change

Engaging Local Leaders to Foster Welcoming Communities

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.
