Earlier this year, Salt Lake County and Salt Lake Chamber launched the Welcoming Salt Lake initiative, to recognize the economic and cultural value that New Americans bring to our community. We gathered leaders to brainstorm how our community can be more welcoming to refugees and immigrants, resulting in an action plan.
Today, we are kicking off Welcoming Week in which we will share immigrant stories and hope the entire community joins in by posting stories of your own using the hashtag #WelcomingSaltLake. Also during Welcoming Week, tell us what you think about our Welcoming Salt Lake action plan. We'll take your feedback and incorporate it into our final plan.
