Thanks Megan, that seems like a great resource. For those of us who hadn't heard of the initiative before, I found a letter to the Greeley Tribune that details a bit of what it's about. Their mission statement: "We exist to create an environment that promotes and sustains a diverse and vibrant community."

"In order to achieve the goal the mission statement outlines, the board has established three priorities: education, language and community relations. The education committee will focus on supporting community efforts to increase graduation rates and decrease truancy for all students in the Greeley-Evans school district. The language committee will focus on encouraging English proficiency among residents as a way of promoting integration within our community. The community relations committee will focus on promoting dialogue and interaction between all members of the community."
