Race & Equity
We work with City departments to create a city where our diversity is maintained, racial disparities have been eliminated and racial equity has been achieved.
The Kellogg Foundation has organized an event for their National Day of Racial Healing, to encourage truth-telling, strong relationships, collaboration, and collective purpose, on Tuesday, January 19 at 12:00 PST. If you can, please attend the event that will be hosted by Baratunde Thurston, featuring John Legend, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Hasan Minhaj, Maria Hinojosa, Aloe Blacc, Storm Reid and more.
