Population shifts have changed the face of many Idaho communities, but inclusive relationships among groups can build the social capital required for communities to thrive. University of Idaho Extension developed Idaho's Journey for Diversity and Human Rights as a hands-on traveling workshop about past and present issues of human rights and diversity and successful strategies for inclusiveness. Evaluation data show that program impact remains strong years after the Journey and alumni continue to seek information and take action on issues of human rights and inclusiveness at home, at work, and in their communities.
