Thank you for your patience.

The Diversity and Civic Leadership seeks to provide community engagement services primarily benefiting African-American, Latinx, Native American, and Immigrant and Refugee communities including, but not limited to, African, Slavic, Asian and Pacific Islander, and pan-immigrant/refugee communities. Partnering organizations develop and implement a capacity building program for community-based organizations to provide community engagement services for communities of color, immigrants and refugees committed to the program’s goals to:

  • Broaden diverse participation in the governance of the City,
  • Expand organizational capacity to strengthen community organizing, organizational and leadership development, and communications structures to be effective advocates for their communities, and
  • Improve the livability and sense of pride in one’s communities with a focus on communities of color, immigrants and refugees.
