Connected Communities

Ensuring all have opportunities to connect across race, ethnicity, country of origin, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, or veteran status.  

Connecting to people with different experiences gives us a sense of belonging. And connecting with those different experiences offers new perspectives and ideas. Both are vital for our personal wellbeing and for ensuring Grand Forks is not just a city, but a community.

"The City of Grand Forks is the proud home to many new immigrants and refugees who come to our great city to begin new lives, families and opportunities. Together, our existing and new residents create the tapestry that help define our community, and together we create a 'Welcoming Grand Forks'." - Mayor Michael R. Brown
