Immigrant Heritage Month 2021

Celebrating the stories and resilience of immigrant communities.

Official event information

When

Tuesday, June 1 - Wednesday, June 30, 2021

June is Immigrant Heritage Month! This national celebration uses storytelling to highlight the diversity of immigrant communities and to explore how personal experiences intersect. Throughout the month, the Office of Immigrant Affairs is promoting many community events, including:

  • Musical performances.
  • Educational programming.
  • Community vaccinations.
  • Immigrant Business Week programming.

In the last year, we’ve seen how our local immigrant leaders and organizations have stood up and shown up—not just for their own communities, but also for the greater Philadelphia region. This June, we celebrate community, family, food, and love, and lift up the stories of how our residents and leaders have demonstrated resilience in the midst of great grief and loss.

    The Lived Experience of Hepatitis B - Hepatitis B Foundation

    June 18, 2021
    12:00 pm to 5:00 pm, 5 hours
    The burden of hepatitis B infection is often unknowingly carried by many immigrants who face significant challenges accessing health care due to countless barriers. To demonstrate resilience within the community, the Hepatitis B Foundation and Philadelphia Department of Public Health will partner on a blog and interview podcast that will share the lived experience of an individual directly impacted by hepatitis B. They will discuss challenges and how those challenges were overcome and provide insight into the immigrant experience as it relates to health care.
