Idaho onAir

The Idaho onAir Hub supports Idahoans to become more informed about and engaged in local, state, and federal politics while facilitating more civil and positive discussions with their representatives, candidates, and fellow citizens.

  • Idaho onAir is one of 50 state governance and elections hubs that the US onAir Network is providing to help reinvigorate US democracy.  This post has short summaries of current state and federal representatives with links to their complete Hub posts.  Students curate post content from government, campaign, social media, and public websites.  Key content on the Idaho Hub is also replicated on the US onAir nations Hub at: us.onair.cc.
  • Idaho students will be forming onAir chapters in their colleges and universities to help curate Hub content.  As more students participate and more onAir chapters are started, we will expand to include more state and local content as well as increase the number of aircasts – student-led, livestreamed, online discussions with candidates, representatives, and the public.

ID Public Universities

Every curated onAir state Hub, like this Idaho onAir Hub at id.onair.cc, will have at least one onAir Chapter overseeing the moderation of their Hub’s content and discussions.

The onAir Chapters will be associated with major public universities in each state and be lead by students and a faculty advisor. Each lead onAir Chapter will also help to establish affiliated onAir Chapters at public and private universities throughout the state.

We are currently having discussions with students and faculty at University of Idaho to establish and manage the lead onAir Chapter for Idaho onAir. Through its chapters, Idaho onAir will support the nationwide effort by colleges and universities across the country to  make democracy and civic responsibility a central aspect of higher learning.
