Over the past 20 years, America has seen rapid demographic changes. Although most Americans identify their country as a nation of immigrants, many are anxious about the changes they’re seeing in their communities. But our country has a rich history of communities moving out of poverty using personal initiative, shared capital, and families helping one another. It took a sense of community. Our communities are strongest when everyone in them feels welcome. Today, we must build dialogue and mutual respect among community members in order to foster supportive, welcoming atmospheres for all Americans. Opening Your City will explore experiences and actions that help create this necessary social attachment and openness.
