Plaza Voices: Welcoming Week

Our regular contributor Naghem S. writes:

Welcoming Week is September 14-23. But some people may be asking themselves what is Welcoming Week?

To put it simply, Welcoming Week is a series of events around the country where community members celebrate differences and welcome one another. During this national event, immigrants, refugees, and native-born residents come together to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. The goal of Welcoming Week is to build common ground in our communities and to show our neighbors that we care.

Services to Immigrants and Refugees of the Denver Public Library is proud to announce that this year there are 14 library branches participating in Welcoming Week! We invite everyone to join us for a celebration of understanding and acceptance.
