We don't intend for the journey we began together on February 4, 2017 to come to and end. On this page we'll continue announce new steps and events to educate our community, empower refugees and immigrants, and build a more welcoming community. While we will continue to update this event page, we would encourage you to like our page for easier communication.
Welcoming Week takes place September 15-24, 2017. It serves as an annual celebration to highlight the contributions of immigrants and refugees, and the role communities play in welcoming everyone. Last year alone, over 50,000 people celebrated Welcoming Week across 150 communities. Through a variety of local events, workshops, and film screenings, residents are invited to celebrate, get involved, and meet their neighbors.
There are some exciting events planned for Welcoming Week in Salt Lake City. For a full list please visit the Salt Lake Mayor's blog.
