Events

We host events and informational sessions about topics related to immigrants and refugees.

Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week is Sept. 9-18 and Citizenship Day is Sept. 17. The Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs invites you to explore community events and other ways to make sure our communities are welcoming places for all and get information about becoming a US citizen.

Monthly immigration forum

The City of Minneapolis Office of Immigrant & Refugee Affairs and the City of Saint Paul Immigrant and Refugee Program host a forum every month to give immigration-related updates to the community. These meetings are open to all and include topics like:

  • Immigration news and how it impacts our local immigrant and refugee community
  • Where to go for help
  • Updates from advocacy organizations

Recently we have discussed mental health care, refugee resettlement in Minnesota and drivers licenses and state IDs.

You can see notes from past meetings by clicking "see more details" in one of the meeting descriptions in the calendar below.
