Through Welcoming Week, organizations and communities bring together neighbors of all backgrounds to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity.

Thank you for celebrating #WelcomingWeek2022 with us from September 9-18. Sign up to receive updates about future Welcoming Week updates:

2022 theme: Where We Belong

By focusing on the places and spaces that foster belonging (ie. cities, workplaces, neighborhoods, etc.), "Where We Belong" aims to go deeper and spark individual reflection on how and why belonging occurs, and ways we can break barriers so that places can foster belonging for all, including immigrants and refugees. 

Cities, towns, counties, and nations - and the institutions within them - can lean into what makes their communities welcoming places and showcase how it helps foster belonging for all people, especially immigrants. 

By doing this, we demonstrate the scale and breadth of Welcoming Week spreading across the globe, leaning into the universal values of welcoming places and individuals by helping others belong and feel at home.
