About Welcoming New Hampshire

Launched in 2012, Welcoming New Hampshire works to bring the foreign-born and native-born together to achieve a positive integration of immigrants and refugees into the social fabric of their receiving communities. Through education and cultural activities that both engage non-immigrant audiences and empower immigrants to claim their own voices, Welcoming New Hampshire strives to build an understanding of the impact and contributions of immigrants that will lead to stronger and more inclusive communities and fight back against the anti-immigrant sentiment that has divided so many.

In the past two years Welcoming NH has successfully built bridges of trust between foreign and native-born, engaged diverse stakeholders across sectors, and promoted the contributions of New Hampshire’s immigrant and refugee communities. Concord, Manchester and Nashua have signed Welcoming resolutions, with Laconia not far behind. In collaboration with active Welcoming committees and many partner organizations in those cities, we have hosted presentations and community conversations across the state; launched an integrated media campaign in print, broadcast and social media; and organized a cross-sector statewide Welcoming Conference on September 16, 2016, in Manchester, with the theme of “Building New Hampshire’s Economic Future.”
