Potluck for Welcoming Week - In Support of Welcoming America

You are cordially invited to join us on Friday, September 15th 6:30pm-8:30pm. MCAEL is joining forces with the Latino Economic Development Center, Silver Spring Regional Center and others to participate in Welcoming America's Welcoming Week!

Welcoming Week Sept. 15-24 is an annual celebration bringing together people to celebrate the contributions of immigrants and refugees and the role communities play to foster greater welcome. Welcoming America is leading a movement of inclusive communities becoming more prosperous by making everyone who lives there know they belong. Welcoming America believes that all people, including immigrants, are valued contributors and vital to the success of both our communities and our shared future.

The MCAEL network and the communities we work with are a great example of how working together builds strong communities.

Bring a dish or beverage and join us at Montgomery College Silver Spring/Takoma Park campus in the Catherine F. Scott Commons Building at 7600 Takoma Ave, Takoma Park, MD 20912. Parking and directions here.

*Plates, cups, napkins and utensils provided by MCAEL*

Providers, learners, community stakeholders and MCAEL friends, let's come together to celebrate and eat yummy food!

RSVP requested but not required. Email mbuitrago@mcael.org and/or rsvp on the facebook event page here.
