A relatively new program is attempting to bridge diversity by bringing people of all races together.

The Welcoming and Inclusive Communities and Workplaces Program will be holding several events in Fort St. John during the upcoming months.

Leslie Oliver and Danielle Armstrong outlined the events at the Fort St. John City Council meeting on Monday afternoon.
