Immigrant Heritage Month
Celebrating the stories of immigrant communities and their allies.
Every June, Philadelphia celebrates Immigrant Heritage Month. A national observance, Immigrant Heritage Month highlights the diversity of immigrant communities. It also explores all that we have in common.
Throughout the month, local organizations and City agencies will offer events and activities. This includes:
Attend a naturalization ceremony held in partnership with the Office of Immigrant Affairs, Office of LGBT Affairs, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Explore the intersections of incarceration, immigrant detention, homophobia, and the global refugee crisis with a panel discussion and book-making activity.
Promote the spirit of welcome and inclusion with three concurrent block parties in the neighborhoods where Philadelphia’s refugees live.
Join a facilitated conversation that explores what it means to belong. This event is in partnership with the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Office of Immigrant Affairs, and the Office of LGBT Affairs.
