Welcoming City Initiative

Welcome to our Welcoming City Initiative, where we celebrate the rich diversity of our community and strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. At LORI we believe that every individual, regardless of their background, deserves to feel valued, respected, and supported in our city.

LORI recognizes the efforts and contributions of our communities, particularly migrants residing in our city. We do not only promote and support the work of our immigrant communities, but also aim to demonstrate that by providing a friendly environment for all. We can bridge the gap between “others” and create an even more lively environment by creating a welcoming city which will not only boost our revenue but also create opportunities for others.

An Initiative that seeks to develop a collaborative effort with identifying stakeholders and residents to foster growth and creates opportunities for communities to thrive.

Key Objectives of the Welcoming Initiatives:

  1. Promote Cultural Awareness: Through educational programs, cultural events, and community outreach,
    we seek to increase awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultural heritage present in our city.
  2. Provide Support and Resources: We strive to connect newcomers and underserved populations with
    essential resources, such as language classes, social services, to help them integrate and succeed in our community.
  3. Encourage Inclusive Policies: We advocate for policies and practices that promote inclusivity, equity,
    and accessibility for all residents, regardless of their background or circumstances.
  4. Foster Community Engagement: We facilitate opportunities for meaningful interactions and collaborations
    among residents from different cultural backgrounds, fostering relationships that strengthen our social fabric.

Get Involved

We established a survey to gather feedback from all residents on what constitutes an inclusive and inviting community, as well as suggestions for making it more welcoming.

Whether you are a long-time resident, a newcomer, or someone in between, there are many ways to get involved in our Welcoming City Initiative. Your voice and input are important to developing safe, healthy, and connected communities.
