Welcoming Greater Lafayette

Welcoming Greater Lafayette is a group of individuals and organizations working together to create a more welcoming community for all, especially immigrants and refugees. As we work towards joining Welcoming America, a national organization that provides a roadmap and support that communities need to become more inclusive toward immigrants and all residents, our team is collecting stories of welcome and unwelcome in greater Lafayette. Our aim is twofold: 1. To create a database of our community assets - what we are doing well - and the areas that we can improve upon. 2. To celebrate and foster a welcoming spirit in the Greater Lafayette community by listening and learning from each other's experiences.
