A yard sign says something about you and who or what you believe in. But what if the message in your yard wasn't for your sake but for the sake of someone reading it?
Ohio is home to almost a half million foreign-born residents* These mothers, fathers, and children, at great personal risk and expense, left their own faraway neighborhoods to seek a hopeful future here. They are doctors, builders, teachers, learners, contributors, and creators. They are our neighbors. And though our neighborhood is a new home, it is still unfamiliar. And sometimes, unfriendly.
So for these neighbors, imagine encountering a street lined with signs assuring, "We are glad you are here." Imagine a neighborhood saturated with a visible message of welcome.
It is possible that your yard sign could be the news that someone needs to hear.
