Building more inclusive and welcoming communities for all members of our community is an important part of immigrant integration. HAP works with local organization and groups to explore immigration and the role of immigrants in our community. We do this through presentations, film discussions, and activities that bring immigrants and non-immigrants together to exchange stories, break bread together, build connections and relationships.
An important piece of building more welcoming communities revolves around transforming the public dialogue on immigration into one of respect and dignity through relationship building, community education, and communications. HAP encourages people who are moved by our efforts to take concrete action to make Colorado a more welcoming state for all by taking individual action to welcome and connect with immigrants, writing letters to the editor in support of inclusivity and immigration, and by asking your faith or community groups to be more inclusive.
