Welcoming America Comes to Cleveland
Reception, Film Screening & Panel Discussion
Global Cleveland and Community Partners invite you to help launch the Welcoming America Initiative in Cleveland! Join us for the reception, screening of "Welcome to Shelbyville," followed by a panel discussion.
A documentary about immigrant integration in America's heartland, "Welcome to Shelbyville" takes an intimate look at a southern Tennessee town as its residents - whites and African Americans, recently arrived Somalis and Latinos who came a decade earlier - grapple with their beliefs, their histories, and their evolving ways of life. Set as Obama is elected and the economy is collapsing, it is a tremendously powerful film about race, immigration, and America.

Welcoming America is a national, grassroots-driven collaborative that works to promote mutual respect and cooperation between foreign-born and U.S.-born Americans. The ultimate goal of Welcoming America is to create a welcoming atmosphere - community by community - in which immigrants are more likely to integrate into the social fabric of their adopted hometowns.
