Welcoming Week – Cultural Panel

September 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The annual Issaquah Welcomes You event returns Sept. 12-20! Past years have seen festivities including world dance exhibits, photo booths, educational seminars, book readings and culturally diverse food trucks. This year, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are adjusting to a primarily online version of Welcoming Week. Thanks to all those volunteers who helped put this year’s unique event together!

Welcoming Week is a national event when a chorus of thousands—in communities large and small, rural and urban—celebrate the benefits of an inclusive society and deepen their commitment to creating places that are welcoming to everyone, including immigrants, refugees and those who have been systemically excluded.

  • Cultural Panel via Zoom – Sept. 18 @ 12-1:30PM
    • Explore Issaquah’s past and present through the eyes of people of color and immigrants in our community. Join us as we hear how Issaquah’s history has impacted the present and share ideas for working together as a community to make everyone feel welcome.
    • More information and registration link to come.
