ENCORE: Idaho Republicans And Democrats Come Together To Form National Institute For Civil Discourse

Darin Oswald
Idaho Statesman
(l-r) Former Democratic U.S. Representative Walt Minnick, former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Keith Allred and former Republican Governor Butch Otter.

This segment originally aired on May 17, 2019

The National Institute for Civil Discourse was established in 2011 following the shooting in Tucson that killed six and injured 13, including former U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Today, the Institute is creating 50 advisory boards to be positioned in each state.

Idaho is the first state to establish such a board and on we speak with Keith Allred, executive director of the Institute and advisory board members Walt Minnick and former Governor Butch Otter.
