With 24,000 immigrants from over 75 countries, Champaign County is  home to the largest immigrant community in Illinois outside of Chicagoland. Immigrants in the community provide support at all levels of the county’s workforce in key sectors like STEM and Education, manufacturing, hospitality, and healthcare. Across a spectrum of education, socioeconomic, and legal status, immigrants have established homes, contributed to our economy, and strengthened the social fabric of our community.

In the midst of anti-immigrant rhetoric, policies that hurt families, and community polarization, Welcoming Week reminds us of the resilient and inclusive spirit of American communities. With such a diverse community, it is imperative that all neighbors have opportunities to engage, build understanding, and work together to create positive changes for all.
