Committee members have very diverse professional backgrounds and represent the following identities: military veterans, LGBTQIA+, Black/African American, White/European American, Muslim American, Native/Indigenous American, persons with disabilities, and Hispanic/Latinx. While the committee does not include every underrepresented group in the city, its goal is to work with as many groups as possible to ensure a broad representation.

The Diversity Advisory Committee will meet monthly starting next week. Its mission is to:

  • Advise the City on diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies and policies that improve outcomes for marginalized communities;
  • Assist the City in strengthening the relationship with diverse community groups, including historically underrepresented communities and marginalized populations; and
  • Lead the community in thought-provoking discussions that support cultural understanding, mutual respect and inclusivity, and further the enhancement of our community as one where cultural and physical diversity is celebrated as an important asset.

Its four major areas of focus are public safety, economic growth and prosperity, community building and inclusion, and city practices.
