Welcoming Language Diversity in Philly

Posted by City of Philadelphia on September 13, 2022

When Philly says “Welcome”, we say it to everyone living in or visiting the City of Brotherly Love, including our community members who are dominant in languages aside from English: Philadelphia residents come from all over the world and have brought along over 180 languages. We’re proud to support the broad spectrum of humanity represented in our City.

Most events and services in Philadelphia touch more than one community: language communities, religious groups, folks of all gender and sexual orientations, people with disabilities, and racial and ethnic communities all overlap one another in our homes, workplaces, stores, parks and schools.
