Watch: A New Generation of Welcome in Kansas

How do we create welcoming communities in rural places? Leaders from rural Kansas discuss how they are working to do just that.

Hear from leaders like Paul Cloutier of A Bolder Humboldt, an organization that’s imagining—and rebuilding—a 165-year-old, rural Kansas town for a new generation of vibrancy and relevance.

“I like this idea of rural as the frontier: this place that sort of suggests newness and change,” Cloutier said. “I think that means welcoming new people and new ideas because really that’s only option. We don’t have any other chance. We kind of have to rewrite our destiny anyway, so why not rewrite it in such as a way that it is more inclusive and welcoming?”
