Overview

The Ad Hoc Racial Equity Committee started in September 2020 after the City approved a racial equity resolution no. 682. Part of this charge was to begin a committee to review the City's policies and determine how we could become more inclusive as a community. 

Resources

Part of the committee's goal is to help educate the community on matters of racial justice. The Committee in cooperation with Johnson County Public Library has put together several resources for members of the community to start to learn more about race and racism. We encourage you to check out these links to learn more.

All meetings are remote

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all City meetings remain remote until further notice. Below is the information to participate in this meeting.
