Pocatello Ranks at Top of 2017 Municipal Equality Index for Idaho


Pocatello finds itself at the top in the Gem State according to a new report from the Human Rights Campaign.

According to the 2017 “Municipal Equality Index” (MEI), Pocatello scored 75 out of 100, placing the city first among surveyed cities in Idaho. The report “examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there.”

“I’m pleased to learn that Pocatello is ranked as the top Idaho city on the Municipal Equality Index,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “We’ve come a long way, and I’m proud of our progress.”

Rounding out the top three Idaho cities were Boise checking in at 71 and Coeur d’Alene which scored a 66.

The report measured the municipalities across five categories including non-discrimination laws, municipal services, the municipality as an employer, law enforcement, and the relationship with the LGBTQ community.
