Welcoming Webinar

A growing number of places recognize that being welcoming leads to prosperity. This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of the Welcoming Framework and offers participants resources needed to become more inclusive toward newcomers and longtime residents.

Welcoming Webinar

Black immigrants are one of the fastest growing demographics in the United States. Nonetheless, this group remains a novelty in the broader immigration discourse. Join Welcoming America and the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) for an in-depth look at the State of Black Immigrants in the US. The webinar will highlight BAJI’s 2016 report focusing on policing, mass incarceration, immigrant detention, and deportation.

While Shelbyville is, in many ways, a typical southern town, it is also unique. Several of the residents appearing in the documentary and on this website are active participants of the Welcoming Tennessee Initiative, a statewide effort to help improve relations between long-term residents and immigrant newcomers.
