Welcoming Webinar

Legacy cities across the Midwest are looking to immigrants and refugees as catalysts for energizing urban neighborhoods that have lost population and seen disinvestment. Hear from RISE in St. Louis as they tackle their second affordable housing project initiated, in part, to connect with immigrants and refugees as potential tenants, as well as from Global Detroit in its efforts to facilitate immigrant purchase, rehab, and occupancy of vacant housing from the Detroit Land Bank Authority.

Though cities and towns across the nation are making impressive strides towards becoming beacons of inclusion and welcoming, disturbing forces of bigotry and hate are a reality that local leaders must contend with. In this webinar, we’ll learn about key trends in hate speech and crimes, new and promising efforts that are coming together at the local and national levels to combat them, and recommendations for welcoming communities to take for developing a proactive approach.

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.
