Building Welcoming Communities Campaign
In September 2015, the White House Task Force on New Americans launched the Building Welcoming Communities Campaign (BWCC) to encourage local communities to engage in local immigrant integration efforts, in partnership with Welcoming America, a national non-profit organization with expertise in welcoming efforts. 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.

The Mission of the Welcome to Juanita event was to celebrate our wonderful differences and find unity.
The event brought various cultures together to celebrate the diverse population of Kirkland and illuminate the talents of successful immigrants as a source of creativity, inspiration, and economic sustainability for our local community.
