During Welcoming Week, local communities around the world host in-person and virtual events that connect people of different backgrounds through shared causes and interests. This toolkit contains resources and guidance to support Welcoming America members, Welcoming Week partners, organizations, and individuals planning and promoting Welcoming Week events.

Below, you’ll find social media tips and assets, media relations support, logos and other visuals, event planning best practices, and event examples, as well as information about this year’s campaign theme, “We’re All In.

Welcoming Week events are most successful when they’re tailored to the interests and needs of specific places. We encourage you to use these tools creatively and plan events that are unique to your own communities.

As September nears, we’ll update this toolkit with new resources. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date on Welcoming Week 2024.

About Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week is an annual campaign and celebration to showcase the movement of communities striving to be more welcoming places for all, including immigrants. Launched in 2012 by Welcoming America and its members, Welcoming Week provides individuals and communities the opportunity to proclaim welcoming values through events and local initiatives that foster mutual understanding between immigrants and non-immigrants, as well as deeper belonging for all.

Events are the heart and soul of Welcoming Week. They build stronger communities by bringing together immigrant and non-immigrant residents, encouraging dialogue, and building connections between people who are different.

By hosting a Welcoming Week event, you are part of a growing movement of communities across the world who recognize that building welcoming communities makes us stronger.
