In the expansion of the Welcoming America project, NHAIR is also working in bringing the foreign born and the native born together to a achieve a positive integration of immigrants and refugees into the social fabric of their recipient communities. Through education and cultural activities directed mainly to non-immigrant audiences, Welcoming New Hampshire intends to build a sensible understanding of the immigrant community that will lead to acceptance and undermine the anti-immigrant sentiment that has been spread throughout the country by divisive parties.
