About Welcoming Week
National Welcoming Week is an annual series of events designed to bring together immigrants, refugees, and U.S.-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. The week’s activities celebrate the contributions of newcomers and provide opportunities to build cross-cultural relationships and understanding. This year, Beaverton Welcoming Week was celebrated Sept. 14 - 23, 2018, alongside more than 500 events in communities across the country. Beaverton’s celebration is part of the broader city-wide Welcoming Beaverton initiative.
