The first African refugee to run for Boise city council

In November 2019, Tecle Gebremicheal became the first Ethiopian refugee to run for local office in Boise, Idaho. “When I first came to America, I promised myself that I will do everything I can to give back to the country and community that welcomed me,” he says. “I want to show that when refugees come here, we try to integrate and contribute however we can.”
