GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies Welcoming Week is coming to an end. It started on Saturday, Sept. 12, and is ending on Sunday, Sept. 20.

The organization is wrapping up the week with a neighborhood porch party on Sunday, Sept. 20. Leaders are encouraging people to step outside the house and greet others who pass by. The event is from 5 to 7 p.m.

The goal is to get people to meet their neighbors and welcome newcomers to the community, especially newcomers who may be immigrants or refugees. Usually, GLIA's annual Welcoming Week includes a number of in-person activities throughout the week but because of COVID-19 safety concerns, organizers have decided to plan events that can be done remotely but still in a way that people can interact. 

This year's event's included a movie screening and discussion, a virtual community question and answer session, and featuring different immigrant-owned businesses in Greater Lafayette on the organization's official social media pages.

If you're interested in participating in the neighborhood porch party you can sign-up here to let people know that you'll be outside greeting. You can also find other participating neighborhoods by using your mobile device to scan the QR code in the image below. People who participate will be given GLIA 'goodie bags' that can be handed out to others who stop by. At least 15 people are currently signed up to participate.

GLIA's Welcoming Week joins the national movement 'Welcoming America' event also taking place the same days.
