Due to COVID-19, we have extended our traditional Welcoming Week activities throughout the fall into what we're calling "Welcoming Season". 

Through Welcoming Season, organizations and communities bring together immigrants, refugees, and long-time residents to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity.

At a time when political rhetoric has deepened divisions and the COVID-19 pandemic has renewed anti-immigrant sentiment, Welcoming Season reminds us to double down on our inclusive vision and find new ways to bring together people across lines of difference to develop a greater understanding and mutual support.
