Each fall, the University of Idaho Extension hosts a cultural tour of a segment of our beautiful state, with a focus on issues of diversity and human rights. This year Idaho’s Journey for Diversity and Human Rights takes us to South Central and Eastern Idaho to explore the geography and history of Twin Falls, Pocatello and surrounding areas. Join us as we learn the pioneer story of the 1800’s, meet the recent arrivals to the area, and explore the links between faith and culture that shaped our communities.
This year’s Journey focuses on the relationships between groups when cultures meet, from the challenges of pioneer groups in the 1800’s, or Idaho’s more recent arrivals. Key topics for discussion will include:
• The diversity of peoples who came to Idaho in the 1800’s.
• The faith traditions that helped shape the Idaho’s towns and communities.
• Idaho’s current immigrants and refugees and their roles in today’s communities.
The meeting schedule for Idaho’s Journey includes October 4 from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm and October 5 from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm. Details available at the Idaho Journey website.
