Immigrant Heritage Month 2022
Providing an opportunity for residents to explore their heritage and celebrate diversity through Immigrant Heritage Month programming.
Philadelphia is pleased to launch our sixth year of celebrating Immigrant Heritage Month!
Immigrant Heritage Month is an opportunity for all residents to explore their heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of America. It’s also a chance to highlight the important role of immigration in the U.S. and recognize the many contributions immigrants have made to our country.
In Philadelphia, we recognize that our diversity is our strength and that immigrants and their children are making cultural, economic, and political contributions every day. This year, we’re emphasizing stories that follow the theme of “Looking Back to Move Forward.”
Mayor Jim Kenney and Amy Eusebio, Executive Director of the Office of Immigrant Affairs, will announce the Immigrant Heritage Month programming at a press conference.
The event will be attended by community leaders from a variety of immigrant communities. It will also include cultural performances.
The Free Library of Philadelphia offers resources to help residents build a professional business plan. At this session, we’ll review the elements of a business plan and the building blocks of business research.
You can also learn how to book a librarian or access other business professionals and tools.
The Black and Gold Leadership Boot Camp: Strengthening Black and Asian Relations is the second session in a three-part series.
This event will give the City’s appointed commissioners and key community leaders the tools to strengthen understanding, communication, and interaction between Black, Asian, and other allied communities through experiential learning.
Join the Philadelphia Refugee Resettlement Provider’s Collaborative for its annual celebration of World Refugee Day. Newly arrived refugees and refugee allies will gather for a day of family fun celebrating the resilience of refugees and refugee communities.
You can purchase tickets to the Philadelphia Zoo. Former and current clients of NSC, HIAS Pennsylvania, Bethany Christian Services, and Catholic Social Services can contact the agencies for special pricing.
