Welcome Dayton Plan

Dr Migwe Kimemia, Program Director of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) Dayton office will be speaking at Hopedale on the Welcome Dayton Plan: My Reflections on Extending Hospitality to Refugees in Dayton.

The Welcome Dayton Plan is a community-driven initiative designed to transform Dayton into an immigrant-friendly city. The Dayton City Commission passed the Resolution to promote cultural diversity, immigrant integration and international commerce. The Resolution stipulates, among other things, that the “Dayton City Commission encourages immigrant groups, other government agencies, community institutions, and the business leadership to undertake their own initiatives, beyond this Plan, to make Dayton not only a welcoming place for new residents from other countries but also a center of world commerce.”  Service Leader: Peggy Branstrator (Children’s Class Day)
