It takes a village to make your community a more welcoming place.
Join our network of welcomers to get started.
The Welcoming Network is composed of over 200 nonprofits and local governments working to build more inclusive and welcoming communities in the United States and abroad. Led by Welcoming America, the Welcoming Network is both a network and a movement, driven by the conviction that communities make better decisions when residents of all backgrounds, identities, and perspectives are meaningfully engaged.
By joining as a Welcoming Network member, you receive the tools, resources, technical assistance, and global community of practice to help communities of all sizes become more welcoming places. In turn, members commit to advancing and institutionalizing welcoming efforts in their community and to share their experience and lessons learned with the network, while receiving training, resources, networking, and leveraged funding.
