Welcoming Week 2020

September 12, 2020 September 20, 2020 EDT

Welcoming Week is a national celebration of the growing movement of inclusive communities that fully embrace immigrants and their contributions to the social fabric of our country!

Created by YMCA of the USA’s (Y-USA) national partner Welcoming America, Welcoming Week brings together immigrants and US-born residents at community-based and virtual events. These events foster cross-cultural understanding and help to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone.

We invite you to participate in Welcoming Week with the following activities, events, and much more!
