When you are new to a neighborhood, city or nation meeting locals is the best way to feel part of a community. However it takes courage to be the first person to open the door to strangers. That's why we need welcomers.
From June 19th to the 25th 2017, the Welcome Party hosted the inaugural Week of Welcome. We had events listed around the world and over 2000 people came together to create ideas to build more welcoming neighborhoods for our most recent arrivals. Surprisingly more than 20% who participated were either refugees or former refugees.
