Immigrant Heritage Month 2021: Celebrate Resilience

Posted by City of Philadelphia on May 25, 2021

Every June we celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month locally and nationally. It is a time for people across the United States to explore their own heritage and #CelebrateImmigrants and the diversity that forms the unique American experience. For Philadelphia, it is also a time to celebrate all that is beautiful and vibrant about being a welcoming city and celebrating our local diversity and culture in all its shapes and forms.

Sometimes it is hard to celebrate amidst so much loss and grieving. However, 15 months since the local stay-at-home order, the Office of Immigrant Affairs and the City of Philadelphia has witnessed so much resilience and pivoting led by our local residents and for that, we choose to celebrate. In 2021, the City chooses to recommit to our values and our commitment to the community.

This administration has stood with Philadelphia’s local immigrant communities for the last five years and we will continue to stand with our local communities into the future in big and small ways.  We see you and celebrate you.
