Welcoming Week

September 10-16, 2023

Welcoming Week

Our sense of belonging is tied to the places and spaces that we live, work, and rest in. It is what motivates us to build a greater “we”—because we each know what it means to not belong somewhere, we are even more empowered to help foster belonging for others.

Here's a look at last year's Community Welcome Fair!

Welcoming Week culminates with the Community Welcome Fair on Saturday, September 16, bringing together neighbors of all backgrounds and building strong connections and community.
