Harrisonburg Votes to Become a Welcoming City

We’re excited that last night our City Council voted unanimously to become a Welcoming City, part of the Welcoming America network!! This is a first step toward deepening the culture of welcome here and connecting the people and institutions who together can address many challenges faced by immigrants and refugees. We’ll keep working with our neighbors to follow up on this great step!
