Welcome  |  Connect  |  Belong
Educate  |  Inform  |  Enlighten
Gather  |  Share  |  Celebrate

To help them in their work, the Committee will welcome and encourage meeting attendance and participation in initiatives from residents and civic entities engaged in diversity, equity and inclusion education and training opportunities, community programs and events.
