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.

This guide is a tool that was developed by the Public Conversations Project for Welcoming America. This will help you plan a dialogue, which Welcoming America believes is a key part of any Welcoming initiative.

In order to build truly inclusive communities where foreign-born residents have the opportunity to thrive, we must ensure they have the opportunity to achieve healthy lives. Below, we have compiled resources for you to begin exploring health equity and how it fits into your welcoming work.

Creating a welcoming community for immigrants can help to create a more healthy community for everyone, and such efforts to create health equity ensure that immigrants and refugees can participate fully and belong. Our white paper provides recommendations to help communities pursue a combined health equity and immigrant inclusion agenda. 

The world is on the move, bringing diverse people to U.S. communities. Global migration provides an opportunity for local communities to welcome new talent and recognize the importance of an inclusive and dynamic approach. Forward-thinking communities reflect upon what these changes mean locally and how to foster a community climate in which all are welcome and can contribute to their fullest potential.

Welcoming Webinar

This webinar will help participants learn more about the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) and how municipalities in partnership with local CBOs can use community-based address canvassing to improve the local address list and improve the undercount of immigrants. More information about the role municipalities can play in LUCA prior to the call can be found here.

Welcoming America is partnering with Civity to offer training and coaching assistance to selected communities interested in deepening work to foster connections across difference. Selected communities will receive tailored trainings and follow-up support from Civity to improve intentional relationship-building skills and to create and grow opportunities for connection and relationship-building across difference, including difference between newer immigrants and refugees and longer-
term residents. This opportunity is open to Welcoming Network members across the United States.
