About Welcoming Week Minneapolis

Welcome sign from 2018 Welcoming Week in 10 of the most common languages in Minnesota

Minneapolis is part of Welcoming America, a network of cities and counties that foster an inclusive community and believe that, when everyone feels like they belong, communities prosper. Welcoming Cities believe that all people, including immigrants, are valuable contributors to society, vital to the success of our communities and to our shared future.

Welcoming Week is an opportunity to recognize the contributions and importance of immigrants to our communities and to demonstrate that Minneapolis is a Welcoming City. Get-togethers, readings, potlucks and sporting events are some ways that municipalities choose to celebrate and show welcome to our immigrant and refugee community members.
