About this event

Join us for a virtual conversation featuring a group of immigrants and immigration advocates talking across cultures about their experiences. We’ll ask what it has been like coming to San Antonio, what resources refugees and immigrants have available to them, how welcoming the community has been, what they’ve learned since coming to the U.S. and what advice they have for immigrants coming here today.

CityFest: Live Local

Join us for CityFest 2022—four days of dynamic programming curated around the theme “Live Local” from Tuesday, October 4 through Friday, October 7. As San Antonio continues to recover from the worst days of the pandemic and look toward strengthening our community using an equity lens, our fifth annual urban ideas festival will be staged throughout the city and streamed online to promote accessibility and community engagement.

Our keynote luncheon titled “The Exit Interview” will be a conversation with County Judge Nelson Wolff and San Antonio Report co-founder Robert Rivard at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. San Antonio Report staff along with invited guests will serve as moderators throughout the week for panels and events to get you connected (or re-connected) to your city.
