Through Welcoming Week, organizations and communities bring together neighbors of all backgrounds to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity.

Welcoming Week is an annual campaign that celebrates the work in communities to become welcoming places for all, including immigrants. Launched in 2012 by Welcoming America and its members, Welcoming Week provides individuals and organizations the opportunity to showcase their values through events and initiatives that foster connections and collaboration between immigrants and non-immigrants, as well as belonging for all.

Each year, more than 300 events take place in-person and virtually across the globe for Welcoming Week.

Welcoming Week wouldn't be possible without our partners. Partners are organizations that operate on a national or international level and ideally have their own networks of members or constituents to activate around Welcoming Week. Partners commit to promoting Welcoming Week through external or internal platforms; sharing their logo on this website; and commit to one of the following:

    • Issue a Welcoming Week proclamation or statement
    • Develop and share a piece of content on how their members or constituents can support welcoming efforts
    • Share the Welcoming Week planning webinar and/or toolkit with your network
    • Host a Welcoming Week and list events on the Welcoming Week website

Check out our toolkit for more ideas and templates to get start. Interested in becoming a partner? Contact Daniel Valdez,
