Looking Back to Move Forward: Immigrant Heritage Month 2022

Posted by City of Philadelphia on May 24, 2022

Philadelphia is pleased to launch our sixth year of celebrating June as Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM)! Immigrant Heritage Month, which is now in its ninth year as a month-long national effort, begins June 1.

IHM is an opportunity for all residents to explore their own heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of America. It is also an opportunity to highlight the important role of immigration in the U.S., and to recognize the many contributions immigrants have made to our country.

In Philadelphia, we recognize our diversity is our strength and that immigrants and their children are making ongoing cultural, economic, and political contributions every day. This year we are emphasizing stories that encourage Looking Back to Move Forward.
