Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force

DEI Task Force Update - November 20, 2020

The DEI Task Force has been meeting weekly since early October. They have formed subcommittees to work on specific areas, which include:

  • Affordable Housing 
  • Education 
  • Police Department 
  • Community Services 
  • Economic & Civic Advancement 

Public Engagement Meeting
The DEI Task Force held a Public Engagement Meeting on November 5. The meeting introduced the Task Force members and shared their mission. Each Working Group briefly presented their area of focus.  The Task Force then opened the meeting to hear from community members to share their thoughts, ideas, and what is important to them.

The meeting was very well received and attended by over 100 members of our community. We thank everyone that joined us and participated. The recording is linked below.

Next Steps
The Task Force continues to work on developing a set of recommendations for Council which will be presented on December 7, 2020. Phases 2 and 3 DEI Task Force Strategies will be included in the recommendations presented to the City Council.
