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.

In this webinar, participants learned how connector programs, from Halifax to St. Louis to Detroit, strengthen international professionals’ ability to participate in regional job markets and obtain meaningful employment.
