Area Immigrants
As the nation prepares to celebrate National Welcoming America Week September 15 - 22, 2013, the Bi-State Development Agency is introducing new multi-language posters on its MetroBus vehicles and MetroLink trains designed to welcome St. Louis' foreign-born population to our region's transit system.
St. Louis Mosaic Project Focuses on Diversity and Contributions of Immigrants to Communities
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), September 15, 2013 - The week of September 15-22, St. Louis will kick off Welcoming America's National Welcoming Week, a nationwide event to highlight the contributions of immigrants to American communities.

Throughout the country, these events aim to build meaningful connections and a spirit of unity between immigrants and U.S.-born Americans.

"Immigrants bring work skills, add to our neighborhoods, pay taxes and buy goods in our region. And, we need new residents to add to our own multicultural perspectives, so our regional enterprises can compete effectively in the widening global market," said St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay. "This week serves to celebrate our diversity and opportunity to grow."

"One way all St. Louisians can contribute is to become a Mosaic Ambassador for the St. Louis Mosaic Project. Mosaic ambassadors experience enjoyable ways to become a part of the overall St. Louis Mosaic Project regional goal: Regional Prosperity through Immigration and Innovation," said Mosaic Project Director Betsy Cohen. "The St. Louis Mosaic Project goal is that by 2020 we have the most growth of immigrants of any major metro area."

"The Mosaic Project says a lot about where our region is going. We want to be more diverse and see things from different points of view," said St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley. "I'm thrilled with the immediate and enthusiastic response from the St. Louis community. We had hundreds of residents sign up to be Mosaic ambassadors within just a few weeks." An estimated 5,500 people are expected to participate in more than 77 events across the country during National Welcoming Week this year.

"The St. Louis region enjoys a long and proud history of immigrants who built businesses and strengthened our community, and our region's future now depends on how well we welcome the next generation of immigrants and innovators. Together, we will make St. Louis a more attractive place for people to live, work and invest," said St. Louis Regional Chamber President & CEO Joe Reagan, a member of the Mosaic Project's steering committee.

In an effort to create stronger communities through local events focused on community beautification, healthy communities, and connected neighborhoods, the St. Louis Mosaic Project and its partners have created the following events and activities:

  • Monday, September 16: Metro bus signage rollout; "Welcoming Immigrants" will be plastered in Metro buses in 17 languages.
  • Tuesday, September 17: Bagels and Coffee: Immigration 101; 7:30 a.m. - 9 a.m.; International Institute Discussion with Institute President Anna Crosslin and two local immigrants.
  • Tuesday, September 17: Citizen U; 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.; Gephardt Institute; Washington University, West Campus, Conf. Rm A/B; Roundtable discussion on immigration issues and impacts over dinner.
  • Friday, September 20: Naturalization Ceremony; Eagleton Federal Courthouse; 28th Floor, En Banc Courtroom; 60 new Americans will be naturalized. Bring a small bouquet of flowers if you'd like to welcome a new citizen.
In addition, several schools in the St. Louis area have immigration welcoming activities. To learn more about the St. Louis Mosaic Project, visit www.stlmosaicproject.org.
