CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland wants refugees and other immigrants to know they are welcome in the city.

City officials and various local groups are planning a refugee workshop on Thursday to discuss how to make Cleveland more welcoming to those moving from other countries.

Sponsors say about 300 people are expected to attend the half-day event, including public officials, academics, and civic and business leaders. Mayor Frank Jackson is slated to attend.

Backers of the “Open Doors to a Welcoming City” workshop include the Cleveland Foundation, the Community West Foundation, and the Refugee Services Collaborative of Greater Cleveland.
