Dayton Among Early Acceptor Cities for
National Welcoming Communities Campaign
The White House Task Force on New Americans has launched the Building Welcoming Communities Campaign to encourage local communities to engage in local immigrant and refugee integration efforts, in partnership with Welcoming America. The President is calling on local communities to act on a set of principles to build inclusive, welcoming communities that allow all residents to thrive and advance integration efforts in three core areas: civic, economic, and linguistic integration.
Dayton is among the 40 early acceptor cities and counties that have signed on to the campaign. The campaign will help better connect federal resources with local communities in order to expand immigrant integration efforts. It calls on local communities to commit to and act on a set of principles that focus on building inclusive communities that enable all residents to thrive, while advancing immigrant civic, linguistic and economic integration.
