Among those scheduled to participate are representatives of companies based in Idaho, Colorado and Utah as well as religious leaders from Wyoming and Washington state.

Mayor Paul Bridges of Uvalda, Georgia, will deliver a keynote address about the losses incurred by farmers after a new immigration law was passed in his state.
