Welcoming Week 2019
Welcoming immigrants and connecting communities in Philadelphia.

Kick off Welcoming Week with a flag-raising at City Hall that honors St. Kitts and Nevis.
Come to the Community College of Philadelphia for free citizenship information and screening. Eligible individuals can receive free help preparing citizenship applications.
Celebrate the Harvest Moon with family-friendly performances, free arts and crafts, games, a mooncake eating contest, lion and dragon dances, and a lantern parade.
Join the Office of Immigrant Affairs, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and the Asian American Studies Program of the University of Pennsylvania for a discussion on gentrification with professor and long-time activist Eric Tang.
