Welcoming Week ’16
Welcoming Week (Sept. 16-25, 2016) is a yearly, national initiative to create inclusive spaces for immigrants and refugees through events, community forums, and dialogue. TCH and the City of Tacoma—which the mayor declared an official “Welcoming City” in 2015—celebrated the week with several events. We also posted special photos, stories, and videos via our Facebook page.
