Welcome to Idaho, the Gem state. People come to Idaho for the opportunities it offers. Native Americans and immigrants from many nations have called the state home. Welcoming Idaho seeks to continue our state┤s tradition of "welcoming strangers".
Welcoming Idaho seeks to foster dialogues in our communities about our shared values. We want to stay away from the hate-filled messages on our airwaves. We do not want fear to rule our lives. We know that Idahoans are compassionate and accepting. Welcoming Idaho celebrates our differences and our common values.
