Welcoming Week is on September 14-23, and partnering with Welcome Toledo-Lucas County, Women of Toledo is taking the lead at hosting a community picnic on Saturday, September 21.

Building on our desire to learn from and about our community members, and incorporating our belief that diversity is more than skin deep; our goal for the picnic is to bring together immigrants, refugees, expatriates, and U.S.-born residents in a spirit of unity to build strong connections across the community and affirm the benefits of welcoming everyone – including new Americans.

This social community picnic event is open to the entire Greater Toledo community and their families. We welcome you to bring a traditional dish to share. We strive to create inclusive and diverse audiences to increase support for female empowerment, New Americans and generate larger movements for social change. In addition, we have affirmed the great value of intergenerational spaces where we believe that the knowledge, experiences and reflections of all generations are valuable and these connections can make this event more meaningful, creative and relevant. Hence, this event is open to all ages group to attend so that they can interact and support each other. Join us and engage as we celebrate Welcoming Week.
