Welcoming Week is an annual series of events happening nationwide, where organizations and communities bring together immigrants and those born within their countries in a spirit of unity to build strong connections across their communities and affirm the benefits of welcoming everyone.
The OCC created a space for students to share their Immigration Story, where they included legends, family history, and lived experiences.
The competition is in 3 categories:
Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 20 through THPRD and the OCC Social Media.

Message Garden: Come and share your message of hope, inspiration and purpose!
These Message Gardens are - painted rock gardens - (see pictures here) where families, friends and community members can share their thoughts in support of racial justice and other socially relevant themes.
Additionally, we are offering the opportunity to host small groups of families or friends, so if you have a group that is interested in having a small rock painting party, email us and we can get that set up. It is an excellent way to promote team building for your workplace or just a fun way to meet in a safe and open space while delivering our messages of support and solidarity. (**we are following physical distancing rules and other preventive measures**).
