Welcoming Week

Whether it’s starting a new job, changing schools or neighborhoods, we all know how it feels to not belong. That is why we’re celebrating #WelcomingWeek2021 under the theme of #BelongingBeginsWithUS — because we all know how it feels to be excluded, we know how to make others belong, especially those from other countries. Join us this month to celebrate the spirit of welcoming in Deerfield.

Since 2012, Welcoming Week has served as the annual campaign and celebration led by Welcoming America to showcase the growing movement of communities striving to be more welcoming places for all, including immigrants. By fostering mutual respect and cooperation between new and long-time residents, Welcoming Week brings together people across lines of difference toward greater prosperity for all.
