Welcome, Neighbor is a campaign created by Miry's List in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE). Our goal is to make Los Angeles the most welcoming city for resettling refugee families by activating Angelenos across the city through their Neighborhood Councils to welcome and support their newest neighbors.
In 2019, 14 neighborhood councils voted "yes" to participate in Welcome, Neighbor to make LA more welcoming for resettling Angelenos:
Utilizing social media, council meetings, resolutions, and volunteer opportunities, to date we've reached over 70,000 and engaged nearly 14,000 Angelenos.
