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.
