About the organizers:
New American Consortium for Wellness and Empowerment builds bonds among people, bridges between diverse communities, and links to organizations. Through celebrations and programming, we facilitate trusting relationships and create healthy partnerships in the greater Fargo-Moorhead area. The office and programming space is known as “The WE Center,” for wellness and empowerment, but also for “we,” a community.
The World in Fargo-Moorhead shows the diversity of our area one portrait and one story at a time. These photos and stories are posted weekly to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We also create exhibits that are shown at libraries, churches and other public spaces.
Welcoming Week 2017: Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo. The metro area will be celebrating National Welcoming Week September 14-24 with 20+ events (the number keeps growing) spread out over the 10 days. The local theme this year is “Bring a friend, make a friend,” as organizers hope to see 2,000 people attend events (bring a friend). Organizers are also looking to promote a year-round welcoming community in which friendships cross national, language, and/or faith divides (make a friend). Events are free and open to the public.
