Welcoming Interactive 2017

April 19-21, 2017 - Atlanta, Georgia

welcominginteractive.org

There’s never been a more important time to take a stand for welcoming everyone in our communities, including immigrants and refugees.

At this critical moment in our country, we invite you to join Welcoming America at the Welcoming Interactive, where we will explore how to start or strengthen local welcoming efforts. We believe that all people, including immigrants and refugees, are valued contributors and vital to the success of our communities and shared future.

The strength of our growing welcoming movement – the challenges we face and the successes that we share – will inspire us to move forward together in uncertain times.

Connect, learn, and be inspired: What you’ll take away from the 2017 Welcoming Interactive

We will offer beginner to advanced-level sessions to help you learn how to build and strengthen a local welcoming movement.

Hands-on workshops, interactive small group discussions, and keynotes from leaders in the field will inspire your local welcoming efforts, covering areas like: Welcoming 101, Advanced Communications, Immigrant Economic Development, Making Communities Welcoming for Everyone, Suburban and Rural Divides, International Perspectives, and much more. There will be opportunities to learn skills like writing op-eds or hosting community dialogues to build understanding between newcomers and long-time residents.

We are developing local tours to highlight groundbreaking welcoming work underway across the region, allowing you to see innovations in action and connect with others grappling with similar issues.

What others say about the Interactive…

“It was great to be able to meet people who are doing great work in other communities and trade ideas.”
