About Our Organization

The Council is comprised of more than 50 representatives from local government, public and private schools, businesses, media, faith and other ethnic communities, as well as a cross section of various races, ages, physical abilities, and sexual orientations. The purpose of the Council is to foster an inclusive community through education and communication initiatives.

We are a volunteer organization, whose work focuses on educating ourselves and the community on the diverse individuals, cultures, religions, and governments who make up our community. Through education, we have a better understanding and acceptance of others. We choose to celebrate the differences that make our community stronger.
