The Spirit of Welcoming Lives on Through Sixth Annual Beaverton Welcoming Week

This year, the sixth annual Beaverton Welcoming Week was celebrated under the theme of “Creating Home Together.” The challenge of bringing this year’s events and the spirit of the week into mostly virtual settings was significant. Despite this and with the help of creative leaders, professional videographers and virtual platforms like Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook Live, more than 1,500 people participated from the comfort of their homes. 

Beaverton Welcoming Week 2020 was made possible through collaboration with 15 community partners that stepped forward to demonstrate their commitment to welcoming. Eight of those were recipients of the city’s Welcoming Week grants.
