The Office of Immigrants Affairs joins the national organization Welcoming America to celebrate Welcoming Week, by hosting a series of events to recognize immigrant contributions to our communities. This year, Philadelphia Welcoming Week is September 17-25, 2017

Last year Philadelphia held 30 events during Welcoming Week, bringing together close to 15,000 attendees. We hosted the most events during national Welcoming Week, and we are the winner of the “Most Welcoming Spirit" award, which is given out by Define American, a nonprofit that attempts to "shift the conversation about immigrants, identity, and citizenship" in the United States.  If you or your organization has an event that you would like us to make part of Welcoming Week please contact Hani White at hani.white@phila.gov as soon as possible.
