Welcoming America is a nonprofit leading a movement of inclusive communities becoming more prosperous by ensuring everyone belongs, including immigrants. They connect a broad network of nonprofits and local governments and support them in becoming truly welcoming places by providing communities the roadmap they need to create welcoming policies and share new approaches to inclusion to create an environment where everyone can truly thrive
The St. Louis Mosaic Project is a regional initiative within the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership and the World Trade Center St. Louis. St. Louis aims to be a cultural mosaic because this community believes that immigrants invigorate our region. We want to share our community with its great neighborhoods, outstanding schools, plus some of the best hospitals and cultural destinations in the world.
We are a proud member of Welcoming America and have created this online hub to showcase the breadth and depth of our region's welcoming spirit and commitment to helping all foreign-born newcomers create a sense of belonging.

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Welcoming Week
Welcoming Week is an annual campaign and celebration to showcase the movement of communities striving to be more welcoming places for all, including immigrants. Launched in 2012 by Welcoming America and its members, Welcoming Week provides individuals and communities the opportunity to proclaim welcoming values through events and local initiatives that foster mutual understanding between immigrants and non-immigrants, as well as deeper belonging for all.
This year, Welcoming Week celebrates its 10th anniversary. What started as a small collection of events in U.S. communities has since expanded to reach more than 400 events annually across the world, signaling the broad commitment to welcoming values. Join us in 2022 to recognize and celebrate the people, places, and values that ensure everyone feels welcome and belongs in our communities, no matter where they come from.
