Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in France accepting of differences?
When we asked people about diversity in France and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...
"In France, cultural diversity is embraced and celebrated. People in France are generally accepting of differences and individual cultures, including those of people from other countries. The French government is committed to promoting multiculturalism, and has created programmes and legislation to support diversity and protect minority rights. People of all backgrounds are welcomed and respected in France, enabling a vibrant and inclusive society," said a member in France.
"As a small town with few expats & international visitors, there is not an overtly diverse culture, but there are various religious institutions, celebrations of other culture (like "American Night" in the summer), and an organization called "EST Solidarite" dedicated to solidarity with foreigners," remarked another expat who made the move to Epinal, France.
