Cedar Rapids – A Welcoming Community
Cedar Rapids is proud to celebrate Welcoming Week September 13-22, 2019 to acknowledge the many important contributions immigrants and refugees bring to our community.
Our community’s success depends on making sure that all residents feel welcome. New residents are a vital part of our community — bringing fresh perspectives and new ideas, starting businesses, and contributing to the vibrant diversity that we all value.
Our community’s participation in Welcoming Week shows that in Cedar Rapids, citizens of all backgrounds can come together to create a stronger, more prosperous community. Welcoming Week is one of many initiatives Cedar Rapids supports in order to create and promote an inclusive community.
Welcoming Week is a national recognition of immigrants and refugees, and the role communities play to foster greater welcome for everyone. For more information about Welcoming Week, visit: https://www.welcomingamerica.org/programs/welcoming-week
