The City established the Committee on Diversity & Equity in 2015 to advocate and promote equality and diversity within the organization, and to celebrate and encourage diversity in the community.
Our goal is to raise public awareness of human rights issues through educational programs and activities, and to increase sensitivity to human rights issues throughout City government.
We work with partner organizations throughout the community to aid in developing training, events, and recommendations for changes to City ordinances or policies.
To recommend human-rights related changes to City ordinances, policies or practices please contact us at email@example.com. City employees may report issues directly to any committee member.
