Diversity Coalition Committee

As part of the Race and Equity Framework, City Council committed to the formation of a Diversity Coalition Committee (DCC). The DCC shall examine the City’s current policies and engage the community on various aspects of race and equity as part of an evolving effort to address systemic racism and bias in the policies and practices of municipal government. The proposed goals of the DCC are focused on three specific areas: education, facilitation, and continuous improvement. Although the recruitment period is now closed, all residents and businesses are encouraged to participate in DCC and subcommittee meetings. For more information, please call 562-989-7300.
