Our state’s early pioneers came to Idaho for many of the same reasons modern-day refugees do: to escape persecution and war, to raise their families in freedom and peace, and for opportunities to achieve their dreams. Refugees arriving in Idaho have been forced to flee from their homes due to persecution based on their religion, race, nationality, or social or political group, and are unable to return. Boise provides a home to some of these refugees. They become part of our community and make many positive economic and cultural contributions. Their stories and heritage are rich. Just like yours.
